Grant Burge began brewing arcane bevvies about 30 years ago under his own label. Prior to that he had been a big cheese winemaker with another major Aussie Wine producer.

During the journey Grant has been awarded every major prize the industry has to offer, the Jimmy Watson, Montgomery and Stodart Trophies just to name a few.

In Australia

Sémillon is widely grown in Australia, particularly in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney, where for a long time it was known as "Hunter River Riesling". Four styles of Sémillon-based wines made there: a commercial style, often blended with Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc; a sweet style, after that of Sauternes; a complex, minerally, early picked style which has great longevity; and an equally high quality,dry style, which can be released soon after vintage, as a vat or bottle aged example.
