Conceived in 2012, One Tonne Wine Co. produces small batches of wine from outstanding vineyard sites from the West of Victoria and Coonawarra, South Australia.
Their plan is to produce wines that voice a sense of place – that are created with low tech, old school tools, methods and equipment. They focus on simplicity, yet strive for flavour, intensity and above all great drinkability.
Simon Fennell, Maker of One Tonne Wine Co., generates his main crust by day as Winemaker for Montara Wines in the Grampians region of Victoria. Simon brings over 23 years of varied booze industry experience in founding the One Tonne Wine Co. He has mostly dabbled at (with no particular order of preference) in the pursuits of; craft brewing, winemaking, vineyard work, and has occasionally bashed the drums and or tickled the ivories in more than a few cover bands.
