Past customers will remember the Eagles Rise Wine, Single Man Wine and Wild Wine labels as part of the portfolio of multi medal winning wines made by Erica & David Dillon at their gorgeous property in Russells Bridge Bannockburn Geelong from 1995 until they sold up and retired at the end of 2018. Although they no longer have a cellar door tasting facility, they do have select stock from past vintages.
For over 23 years, under the watchful gaze of a pair of graceful wedge-tail eagles, the Eagles Rise vignerons pursued sustainable agricultural practices and pruned and harvested the vines by hand. These methods, along with traditional low intervention indigenous yeast winemaking, ensured the regional and varietal integrity of the wine was retained. While the conditions are tough, the resulting wines are uniquely rewarding.
Single Man Wine (& yet to be released Single Lady Wine) pay tribute to the solo small operator doing the hard yards the traditional way to bring you a unique hand-made wine experience. Its about a single business owner who buys a piece of land and plants their own vineyard, then hand prunes and hand harvests’ the grapes into a single batch wild ferment wine. They design their own wine labels and handle their own sales and distribution. For them, it’s about valuing tradition and individuality, at realistic prices.
Many customers likewise relate to this business model, as artisans, trades and professionals who spend most of their days running every aspect of their own business and mostly working alone.
In some parts of the world 11 November or 11/11, is known a Singles Day. It is a day when single people celebrate their personal achievements in life and business, and often splurge on the best food and wine they can afford – for one day. Single Man Wine & Single Lady Wine have become part of that celebration of success.
