The Tar & Roses range of wines consists of European varietals and grew out of the desire to make iconic European wines at home in Central Victoria.
Don and Narelle have drawn from their overseas experience, particularly in Spain, to craft the range in a style that reflects their interpretation of these classic varieties. Fruit for the range is sourced mainly from the renowned premium wine region of Heathcote as well as from the Strathbogie Ranges, Nagambie, Northeast Victoria and the Priorat, Spain.
Tar & Roses are the main descriptors for Nebbiolo, the king of red wine in Italy and one of the wines within the range.
Don and Narelle also released their first Riesling under the Tar & Roses brand in late 2014. This Riesling is named after Don, acknowledging his 40 years of making award winning Riesling.
