“WITH THE QUALITY OF WINES RELEASED UNDER THE TURON WINES LABEL, ONE IS TEMPTED TO SAY THE SKY'S THE LIMIT. AS IT IS, IT IS ONE OF THE BEST THREE NEW WINERIES IN THIS WINE COMPANION"
JAMES HALLIDAY / 2019 WINE COMPANION
Turon & Alex are newlyweds who founded the Turon Wines label together.
The couple were married (over a glass of wine) in the Adelaide Hills in October 2018.
They are working with the vision to produce wines that showcase varieties that excel at growing in the cool climate subregions of the Adelaide Hills.
Alex's preferred title is chief cellar hand at Turon Wines. She will honestly disclose that she has no 'official' wine education. Although having worked each vintage for the label with Turon, she has learnt to truly appreciate a clean winery and good vintage dinner of a hot chicken and coleslaw!
She is a physiotherapist by trade, a wheat farmer's daughter and prior to meeting Turon, she did prefer a vodka and lime over wine. The tables have since turned.
Turon graduated with a Ba. Oenology (Hons) from Adelaide University in 2010. Working for various wineries during and after university, Turon identified that the Adelaide Hills was where he ultimately wanted to lay his winemaking hat.
He has over 10 years winemaking experience in the Adelaide Hills, working for some premium wine producers.
Overseas vintages in Oregon, USA, and Eger, Hungary, has helped to cement Turon's passion for cool climate winemaking.
Each variety in our Limited range is a bottling of one stand-out parcel within a block that Turon wanted to pay special attention to. Only one barrel of each variety made each year.
In short, they’re too good to be blended.
Each label is as unique as the wine itself. The very talented Kellie Em has designed these artworks for our artist range.
They are visual metaphors representing the personality of each wine.
