Gentle Folk Village Sangiovese
Gareth and Rainbo Belton are the creative force behind Gentle Folk Wines. Originally from South Africa, Gareth has lived in Australia for two decades. In their previous careers the couple worked as marine scientists specializing in the study of seaweed. It does not surprise that when they started growing grapes, they chose to do so according to the natural rhythms of the environment. They organically and biodynamically farm 7.5 hectares of vines spread over 5 sites, producing only 3500 cases of wine each year.
"Something we've dreamt about making forever…Sangiovese! A great Italian variety and staple for us. This is our first take on it, it's Adelaide Hills. Gorgeous red perfume and those fine dusty tannins. As good as lunch wine gets, we reckon." - Gentle Folk Wines
