We were bred into wine. Firstly, of our birth place in the Hunter Valley, and now, home is McLaren Vale after Mum & Dad acquired their first patch here in 1980.
Since then, we have been able to group a selection of vineyards spread across this wonderful region, between hills & sea, under our own family estate.
We are the Brothers Leask. Richard is the outside man, farmer and maker; Malcolm is the inside guy, director and creator. What started as our “bottle project” in 2011 has now endured and sprouted into our much-loved wine brand.
We believe regenerative agriculture is our guiding philosophy. It is a dynamic holistic system which is down to earth, but also futurist. It is input focused, not process or market driven. For us, this brings tension to our wine. Then, the way this releases in the glass is exciting, truly expressing vineyard & variety.
Our people are devoted to this cause, this is life on a loop, giving back, growing forward, and having fun. Making better wines with a lighter footprint, and being Carbon Neutral certified since February 2021.
If you are new to our path, let’s have fun along the way, make some memories, come with us at Hither & Yon.
Enjoy a selection of 4 wines from our list – this is updated seasonally. We offer a mix between white, rose and reds.
Originally Willunga butcher’s shop built in the 1860s, our cellar door still retains its local slate flooring and limestone walls. Our cellar door is styled to reflect the artisan approach of growing and making our wine from vine to table, making you feel at home whether you come for a look & a sip or a glass & a platter.
We share this space with cool café/providore next door, de Rose Kitchen. So, the designated driver can have a caffe latte while you indulge in either the sunny courtyard out back, by the fireplace in winter, or you repair to our replete cellar.
We offer wine tasting and cheese platters, as well as more substantial lunch options from De Rose Kitchen next door. Sit back and relax with our wines by the glass after grazing at the Farmers Market and perusing the local shops.
A very intimate space.
BOOKINGS REQUIRED FOR GROUPS OF 6 OR MORE.
