We love the Commune of Buttons story and more importantly, we love the wines. Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, a Basket Range site planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother. They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking.
Just a couple vintages in, the results have been fabulous. The wines are made very naturally with only minimal sulphur additions, slow, gentle ferments, little oak influence and an unadultered feel.
