About The Wine

Gareth and Rainbo Belton's Basket Range neighbours, the Broderick family, have a lovely little vineyard with a little Petit Verdot.

Gareth took some to make his own in 2016. Into the fermenter it went as whole clusters to ferment as whole berries before being sent to old barrels for a wee sleep.

It's a slurpy, vibrant wine which has emerged with a very tidy inherent structure that makes this equal parts fun and serious drinking. A great look at an often over-looked Bordeaux variety with stacks of personality.

About Gentle Folk

Deep in the rolling vineyards of the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills lives Gareth and Rainbo Belton.

They are two of the country's leading experts in seaweed who caught the wine bug a few years ago and now run a winery making small batches of fun and creative wines with their friends in the Basket range. 

Gareth farms their three vineyards himself. He works organically in the vineyard and with little to no additions in the winery. The Gentle Folk wines have an energy and style all their own.

Made for drinking with friends and family, these are clean, unpretentious and delicious wines built for fun times. Get involved and be Gentle with each other.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

A touch of baked plum and rosemary, black currant and xmas cake with a violet lift to the aroma. Swetly fruited but nipped in at the seams by fine cords of tannin. Easy to knock back but with a real sturdiness about it. Really interesting stuff from Gareth. - Different Drop Wine Team
