Grandis wines is about experimentation, removing ourselves from over marketed and over hyped wines and getting back to being hands-on with the industry we love. The wines crafted are about exploring alternative varietals and forgotten styles made using unconventional methods. Vastly distinct from the rest on the tasting list!
The Yin-Yang inspired label represents our strive to find balance in everything produced. Balance of ‘Traditional’ winemaking and embracing the dark arts of the ‘Natural’ scene, along with balance of work and family life during vintage.
About A Boy
Shannon Burgess-Moore is a pioneer of Lo-Fi wines in the Hunter Valley. His parents Debra & Ian being the custodians of Moorebank Vineyard on Palmers Lane, their passion for small batch farming and giving back to the land played a big part in shaping Shannon’s future. Starting off in the shadows of his vigneron parents to get a better understanding of the most important parts of wine growing, going on to finish his winemaking studies after international experiences and travel. Shannon completed the AWRI – Advanced Wine Assessment Course, leading to continued extensive involvement as a wine show Judge that saw him accepted and complete The Len Evans Tutorial in 2019. All juggled between his large family and external work commitments.
This makes his path unique with a respect and understanding of the deep rich history of his roots in the Hunter combined with continued passion for alternative thinking in a region steeped in tradition. He has created his own unique style that is reflected in every bottle of Grandis, nothing ever the same, consistently outstanding.
Drink interesting people.
