Acknowledgement of Country
The Nimble Vintner acknowledges that I live on the traditional Country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and I pay my respect to Elders past and present.
I recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. I acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today.
I am truly grateful for the Kaurna people and other Aboriginal Language Groups and First Nations people right across Australia. Wine is a product of the land, the soil, the water, the weather. In sourcing wines from across our country, I acknowledge the importance of the traditional owners of these lands. Their endless commitment to the sustainable use of these precious resources, which we all share.
My Nimble wine journey has taken me around Australia and the world as I’ve explored the wonderful contrasts of the greatest wine regions on the planet.
I’ve been lucky enough to visit and work with some truly amazing grapegrowers & winemakers. Their stories, vineyards and wines are my inspiration for creating The Nimble Vintner. Join me as I venture across the winescape of Australia, uncovering small parcels of amazing wine to share directly with you.
We have been enjoying the Nimble products from the beginning. High quality wines, labeled with love and rapidly delivered. Customers for life.
My wine philosophy
People often ask me how much wine I have in my collection. In truth, hardly any. I believe wine is to be enjoyed, not hoarded. Celebrating with family, friends and the amazing produce we have here in Australia creates endless opportunities for opening special bottles of wine. Life is simply too short to drink anything but delicious wine, which is why I’ve created The Nimble Vintner. I am here to bring you fabulous small parcels of Australian wines from our best regions, at great prices.
My range is forever changing as I discover new wines, loop back on old favourites and explore the possibilities. Join me, it’s going to be one tasty journey!
What I look for
If there is a single word, it is drinkability (noun). Over the years, I’ve noticed how some wines are always the first bottles to be empty at a gathering, while others never get finished. It's not as the latter don’t taste nice - it’s that some wines just go down so easily. The reason, I’ve concluded, is balance - balance of flavours, acids, tannin, oak, sugars and alcohol. The elements of each wine need to support each other, rather than jostle for supremacy. In essence, this is what I am constantly seeking for The Nimble Vintner - wines which not only taste great, but, more so, are well balanced and oh-so drinkable:)
We love Nimble! The wines are always interesting and unique varieties that taste amazing and are great value for money.
There has never been a more exciting time in the Australian wine industry.
In addition to the classics, there are new varieties and styles being explored from coast to coast, grown and made by an incredible bunch of human beings, united around a single cause - creating amazing wine. I simply can’t wait to discover and share these great wines directly with you.
