Background

Matt ‘Gantos’ Gant and John ‘JR’ Retsas are two mates with a lifelong commitment to making kick-arse booze at their winery, ‘Home of the Brave’, in the Barossa. These are wines with flavor, texture and a splash of funk, made with the best fruit from unique patches of the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale.

Arneis, Nebbiolo, Trincadeira, Montepulciano – it’s an eclectic bunch of varietals and blends, but that’s what they're all about. This is booze crafted with a flair for creativity, a twist of innovation – and a sensitivity for tradition. That’s right, it’s not all Touriga/Cabernet blends, as the boys are just as mad about making the best Shiraz in the Barossa Valley. Through years of dedicated vineyard prospecting around the region they've picked out the best bits of dirt for this noble variety.

First Drop is about life, flavor, and fun – wines to drink!

If you've met these blokes or at the very least visited their website, you might have noticed the pretty artistic approach to packaging too. Whether it’s the Hogarth-inspired Mother’s Ruin illustration or the funked-up street art on the 2% Shiraz, this is booze that looks as good as it tastes.

AROMA: A complex nose of cherry, violet, earth and spice aromas and hints of chocolate.
