Island Wine Masterclass//

Learn from the creators at Islander Estate Vineyards and capture this part of the world in a glass.

Arrange a private masterclass or take it home with you.

Meet Jacques and Yale.

Founder and winemaker Jacques Lurton is a 5th generation winemaker from Bordeaux’s oldest family wine dynasty, dating back to 1650.  One of the world’s best known ‘flying winemakers’ Jacques learned his craft in Bordeaux before branching out to establish wineries across Europe and South America.  However, it was Kangaroo Island that captivated Jacques, and he established The Islander Estate Vineyards in 2000. 
Together with his partner Yale, they have focused on handcrafting elegant cool-climate wines that showcase ‘underdog’ varietals like Cabernet Franc & Semillon.
