The Rouge Vintner glassware range is for the wine obsessed. Designed by our very own Dru Reschke, after 20 years in the wine industry he wanted to create a glass that was not only beautiful but practical.
Each glass has been coated with potassium salt which typically gives the glass 5 times the strength of a normal glass – this makes them suitable for use in domestic and commercial dishwashers. The rim has been cold cut and polished, this allows each glass to not only be fine and lightweight but also very strong and durable.
Each gift box contains 4 glasses and makes an excellent wedding, engagement or Christmas present.
Why has it been so hard to find a wine glass that’s just right for both red and white? One that is big, but can still fit in the dishwasher. One that gives precisely five glasses from each bottle without needing a line. One with a fine rim, but 5 x stronger than normal glass. When I couldn’t find that glass, I designed it myself.

The Marquise (Mahr-keez) is a French noblewoman ranking above a countess, and – like this wine – shows elegance, refinement, and sophistication.
The grapes for this cool-climate Chardonnay are grown in Mount Gambier, the coolest mean maximum temperature average of any wine region in mainland Australia.

“Some pretty nifty winemaking decisions have been taken including the time to pick a wild ferment, half in new French Oak (other half in tank), both components undergoing mlf, this is an elegant wine with grapefruit to the fore, but leaving space for a white peach contribution.”

Part barrel ferment has given this cool climate wine layers of complexity, with guava, crisp pink lady apples and gooseberry notes.
Mount Gambier is even cooler than Marlborough in New Zealand, so the long growing period allows the grapes to develop an abundance of flavours without losing the crisp freshness of a true cool-climate grape.
This vineyard, and all our vineyards, only average four sprays per year for disease, using only organically certified products so as not to harm our delicate ecosystem.
