2018 Arno Wine Co. Grenache

Barossa Valley, SA

Delicious lighter styled Barossa Grenache.


Out of Stock

We like to think of it as the Barossa’s answer to Pinot Noir.

About The Wine

Old vine Barossa Grenache is one of Ruby and Craig's true passions. 

The vineyard that supplies them the fruit for this wine is located in the Greenock sub-region on the Western side of the Barossa. These gnarled old bush vines were planted in 1920, today they yield fruit that is vibrant and perfumed - old vines making youthful wines.

They treat it gently in the winery. The fruit is mostly destemmed then aged in decade old hogshead barrels. These inert vessels impart virtually no flavour on the wine so all you see is pure Barossa Grenache in all its rosy glory.

The couple sum it up well, "it is a wine for ‘drinkin, not thinkin’ – just a celebration of pure, delicious old vine Barossa Grenache."

About Arno Wine Co.

Arno Wine Co. is a small husband and wife team based in the Barossa Valley, SA.

Ruby studied wine at Adelaide University, Craig cut his teeth alongside Matt Wenk and Taras Ochota at Two Hands Wines. Craig was working in a wine bar in Adelaide when Ruby walked in - as they say, the rest was history.

Arno Wine Co. (named after their son Arno) is their collaborative project which has been a full-time commitment since 2017. The wines focus on what the Barossa does best - old vine Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet and Semillon.

Smartly packaged, well priced, made with love and care from good Barossa sites. What's not to love?

Additional Info

From The Producer

Hand-picked it is firstly destemmed, though we do add whole bunches to the ferment depending on vintage. It is gently plunged by hand twice a day retaining the wines perfume and detail before ageing in seasoned, 10+ year old French oak hogshead barrels.

The result, we are sure you’ll agree is worth the extra care in the winery.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"There is a stunning vibrancy to its hue and the wine leaps out of the glass with aromas of plum, cherry, Asian spice, purple flowers, gingerbread and wafts of gentle oak. It’s spacious and airy on the palate, with pure, delicious fruit and an energetic spark that drives it across the palate. Gentle in the tannin department, it is a wine for ‘drinkin, not thinkin’ – just a celebration of pure, delicious old vine Barossa Grenache." - Arno Wine Co.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
