Meet the Winemaker - Purple Hands: 24 July 2021

A record 15 Participants: our host, Brett Jones; yours truly; Mark Slade and Craig Stansborough of Purple Hands Wine and invited guests from U.K. and Australia

Appropriately on International Shiraz Day, my Aussie Wine Tasting buddy Brett Jones chose to introduce us to two winemakers from the Barossa Valley, Mark Slade and Craig Stansborough. Mark and Craig met 25 years ago and created their first wine in 2006, 100 dozen Shiraz in the garden shed. Since then their enterprise has grown apace; they produced 20,000 cases in 2020.
