About The Wine
Champagne is what Gareth and Rainbo like to drink at home. Gareth has had it in his mind to have a go at making a Sparkling for a few years now.
Here's his first release.
This is somewhere between a method ancestral and method traditional. There was a base wine made in 2017, some live juice from 2018 added for the second fermentation.
Each bottle has been hand riddled and hand disgorged by Gareth, a huge undertaking for his small operation.
It's absolutely delicious. Only 80 dozen made.
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.
