The underlying philosophy at Etude wines is that winemaking begines in the vineyard, long before the grapes are harvested. The Etude winemaking team-Tony Soter, Jon Priest and Franci Ashton-believes that inspired grape growing dimishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, the end result being superior wines that are grown, not made. Collectively this team has more than 50 years experience they apply in the quest to extract the most from the plants they tend in the places they grown, while at the same time tread lightly on the environment.
