Like the majority of producers in other key New World countries, Australian wineries are now beginning to focus on their own regional identities and indigenous grapes, while the notion of terroir is also strengthening.

Our key producer in Australia is David Lowe, who is also the Vice President of the Winemakers Federation of Australia. David insists that, in order for Australian wine to move to the next step, independent producers must begin to respect and understand their terroir and must focus on their respective regional identities. Currently, Australian wine is hugely popular in the UK, but it is yet to reach its full commercial potential in other parts of the globe.

Another noticeable advancement in Australian winemaking is the increasing number of small producers who have taken to organic and biodynamic principles. Until very recently, this was very much a European practice, yet the number of producers who have adopted these techniques across Australia is staggering. Among them is
David, whose estate is now certified organic.

This year we are delighted to announce that David will take over our Seven Day Road project, an exclusive range created purely for l’Art du Vin, consisting of easy-drinking, fruit driven wines available at entry level.

We at l’Art du Vin acknowledged last year that there was a real need for us to bring an increased quality to our Australian portfolio, and this year we have successfully addressed this issue with the inclusion of three new fantastic producers, namely Hewitson, Shadowfax and Cape Mentelle. We hope that you enjoy them as much as
we do.
