Alpine Valley/King Valley, Victoria
White Stripes is part of an ambitious dream to capture the five principal loves of Callie Jemmeson (winemaker/owner) – wine, music, friends, family and food! It is a true labour of love and like wine, music can bring all of these loves together.
The purity of Pinot Grigio and the earthy grunge of Sangiovese from the Alpine Valley just north of the King Valley captured Callie’s imagination. As a Victorian region synonymous with Italian varieties, it was the perfect fit – for Callie there are no other cultures in the world that live for these same simple pleasures quite like Italy.
These are serious wines without the pretentious waffle – complex yet fun, and most importantly provide the perfect harmony to some crusty bread, a hunk of salami and great company. Saluti!
