When looking for a potential producer and their wines we look to our customer’s requirements in terms of price, quality and exclusivity.
VinumTerra is full of lovers of wine and having wines of interest and quality is important to us in our daily work. Often our producers are very small and making wines of impressive quality, sometimes they are larger but still frequently family owned. Sometimes they are the better co-operatives that make wine of character rather than based only on price.
They are all makers of wine who we feel comfortable dealing with.
Tellurian, Latin for “of the earth”, was established in 2002 by Ian Hopkins, an engineer, who bought a parcel of farming land with great potential for a very good viticultural site. It is now run by his son Daniel. Their first vintage was in 2008, and the vineyard now includes Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier, Marsanne, Rousanne, Rielsing, Nero D’Avola and Fiano.
