Funny isn't it, how some pieces of old furniture can have character? Can become 'part of the family' even, in a way. Well, that's how Ben felt when he found a discarded old grape press in a Clare Valley Vineyard. For months he spent his evenings polishing the wood, oiling the mechanisms, repairing cracks and warps. And it wasn't long before he gave the press a name. Gertie, after his great aunt.


He barely remembered her, but could never forget how her house always seemed to smell of newly made blackberry jam. He's not sure if it's just coincidence that the wine Gertie presses has something of that too with bright red fruit aromas and a lively palate with hints of spice and brambles.
