About

Vinteloper main man Dave Bowley certainly isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of conventional winemaking, and the Urban Winery Project does just that.

The story in a nutshell, is that he takes all his tools of the trade and plonks them down in an absurdly busy area of a major city. Over the proceeding weeks he takes some locally sourced fruit and makes a wine with locally sourced people, helping educate on the winemaking process and having a great time while they do it.

Bowley intentionally keeps the winemaking details rather secret, preferring instead to concentrate on the final slurpable product, and as Dave puts it, “a wine by the people, for the people.”

What we can tell you is that it is a blend of Shiraz and Malbec, and that it is absolutely delicious. It’s one of those easy-to-love, “one glass is not enough” types of wine. Eye- catching packaging too!

What It Tastes Like

Ripe blueberries and plums and all spice on the nose. Round, juicy, sweet dark fruit on the palate, with some meatiness too. Soft vanillin oak, subtle tannins and a heart-warming finish that leaves you wanting more. Balanced, playful and delicious.
