Producer Profile

Konpira Maru

"We were frustrated by the high prices of interesting wines—the ones we wanted to drink but couldn’t afford on our modest incomes. So, we decided to create wines with minimal intervention and maximum care—wines you could enjoy with a bowl of spaghetti on a Wednesday night without breaking the bank. Thus, the Konpira Maru mission was born: make mid-week wines great again. Our aim is to produce wines full of character, focusing on affordability and high drinkability. Wines that are so reasonably priced that you don’t feel the need to discuss them throughout the meal—you can simply enjoy the company you're with and maybe even open another bottle!”— Konpira Maru Wine Company

Where The Wines Come From

Victoria

In the picturesque landscapes of Victoria, Australia, natural winemaking is a celebration of innovation and tradition. This diverse wine region, located in the southeastern corner of the continent, is renowned for its commitment to sustainability and experimentation. Here, amidst rolling hills, ancient soils, and a cool maritime climate, winemakers embrace organic and biodynamic farming practices, nurturing vines with care and respect for the land. Indigenous grape varieties such as Shiraz, Chardonnay, and Riesling thrive in Victoria's varied terroir, producing grapes of exceptional quality and character. In the cellar, minimal intervention is the guiding principle, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Victoria are a testament to the region's rich winemaking heritage, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that reflects the diversity and beauty of Australia's landscapes.
