About Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown
Tessa and Jeremy are playing a long-game with their Vignerons Schmolzer & Brown label. They have invested in a block of land and planted 10,000 vines on it over the last couple of years with plans of managing it fully organically. It comes as no surprise to me that the buzz around this husband and wife team is palpable and the praise is high.
Max Allen recently called them, “one of a remarkable number of impressive new wine labels to have cropped up in Beechworth over the last five years.” We believe Tessa and Jeremy are building something really special, and there's no doubting that they are going to be at the forefront of Beechworth wine for many years to come.
