Avondale Winery began life as a family farm in 1997 when youngest son Jonathan Grieve took the challenge of transforming the land into a vineyard, with the first vintage label being produced in 1999. Following a catastrophic fire through the mountains the following year Jonathan seized the opportunity to develop a unique approach to viticulture which he called ‘BioLOGIC®’. He worked closely with modern science and nature to create sustainable technology and building soil fertility, always with the goal of making natural, delicious wines in a healthy, balanced environment.

Avondale is an exceptionally unique winery continually working to develop high quality wines in a state-of-the-art manner, from nature to high tech gravity-flow cellars.

Fischer’s are truly excited to welcome such a fantastic company this November and are sure there will be no end of tales to tell of the interesting development of these exquisite wines.
