'Let me tell you a story I've never told before.'

SAM COVERDALE

There’s good surf just down the road from Polperro in Red Hill and that’s why Sam Coverdale ‘may’ be late for a meeting or two.

After all, you’ve got to go with the flow. Ever checking his phone to monitor weather patterns for vineyard disease pressure, and of course the swell, this Mornington Peninsula winemaker understands the importance of letting nature dictate the essence and quality of product.

The ebb and flow of the seasons defines each of his single vineyard wines and he’s happy to follow those tides towards complete sensory seduction from barrel to board and back again.
