Vino Volta

Swan Valley

Vino Volta was founded in 2018 by Garth Cliff and Kristen McGann - wine industry lifers. A spirit of experimentation and adventure, underpins Vino Volta, as does a focus on approachability. We craft vibrant and textural wines with a focus on natural ferment and low interference. We predominantly source from Swan Valley and extend this to a couple of other regions with a focus on warm climate suited fruit.

Swan Valley and Swan District (185+ years old in grape/wine producing) is a wine region just outside of Perth and is our home. Vino Volta is focusing in on Chenin Blanc (Swan District can make world class) and Grenache our regional stars. We make multiple expressions of this ranging from Pet Nat and Piquette through to seriously good and drinkable whites and reds. We express old varieties of the region in a non-traditional way through our Different Skins Frontignac/Gewurtztraminer. Your nose tells you sweet and amazingly perfumed and then it is dry and savoury on the palate and one of our favourites. We are exploring warm climate suited varieties that naturally attain balance and require low inputs in the winery to produce bright textural wines which is always our aim.

We buy grapes from the best vineyards of the region. We are Terroir focused and looking at older vines and soil types suited to each variety. Looking to growers that are managing their vineyards using organic methods and growers I would more classify as a regenerative / balanced approach where soils and vines are looked after well but there is some intervention as they see required. In our region this is a complex situation as we need to build in financial sustainability to growers in small vineyards and then work in changing management practices and we see this as a long game.
