Each year, Jed’s winemaking team travel to the Uco Valley in Argentina to craft wines that express the unique characters of this acclaimed region. With combined winemaking experience in Australia, France, North and South America, Jed’s three young Australian winemakers have travelled the worlds wine regions in search of ideal vineyard sites. This search led the trio to the Uco Valley in Mendoza (Argentina), one of the world’s true frontier wine regions. Mendoza has a rich, 450 year history of winemaking, but only in the last decade have the southern vineyards in the Uco Valley emerged as some of the world’s most exciting fine wine producers. Fresh snowmelt water from the Andes, crisp mountain air, high altitude and pure UV light conspire to make the Uco Valley a truly unique place to make wine. This pristine environment yields naturally balanced wines which require minimal intervention in both the vineyard and winery.
