Main & Cherry is a boutique, family vineyard and winery based at Main Road, Cherry Gardens in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. We also own another vineyard, just north of Clarendon, in the renowned wine region of McLaren Vale. Jointly, these two sites are the beating heart of our brand.
Together with our estate fruit, we also source grapes from a network of local growers – a community that we have come to trust and rely upon over the seasons. This gives us the ability to work with an array of sites and soil profiles, from old vines and established varieties, to new alternative styles which we believe are ideally suited to the altitude-influenced folds of the Adelaide Hills.
Led by award-winning winemaker Michael Sexton and his family, we encourage new ideas in our wine story and expression, but we put our faith in more old-fashioned techniques for its production: hand; shovel; and basket-press are our preferred tools.
Above all, we believe that wine should speak of the place from which it came from; the people and community that made it; and the nature, seasons and vintage that have shaped it.
