New premium Australian wine range, The Group, is one to watch. Their motto is ‘individually great, collectively better’ which reflects their unique partnership with a grower-owned collective of more than 100 top growers across South Australia. Their range not only showcases the best possible fruit, sites and regions of South Australia, but also celebrates and supports the unsung heroes of the industry, the growers.

Their inaugural range includes four exceptional varietals and one limited edition shiraz sourced from a biodynamic vineyard.
