From the management of ViN 888 – OLSEN WINES Victoria

In today’s lifestyle, many consumers have developed allergies to sulphur dioxide or sulphites which are normally added to processed food and wine as a preservative, not to mention the many fining agents which are commonly used in wine production. This is only the beginning with more and more people developing allergies.

By profound attention to detail in every aspect of the grape growing, wine making, maturation and bottling processes (amongst our regular style premium wines), we have produced a range of quality wines which the public will drink by CHOICE not by necessity.

These are fine wines by any standard with the advantage of no added preservative or allergen and will appeal to all consumers – even those without allergies.

OUR PASSION

To continue producing award winning, export quality wines across the globe with a focus on Preservative Free tasty wines.
