Mark and Emma Kenneally and Gus and Swan Altschwager are friendship goals.
Four friends, from two families, based in two famed wine regions, they work seamlessly as one winemaking megaforce under the Altschwager Kenneally umbrella. Together, they bottle up cracking sustainable drops from Marlborough, NZ , McLaren Vale and Mount Gambier, SA, which they want you to enjoy with your best people around you (just as they do).
All members of the dream quad bring something to the table—Mark with his voracious hunger for producing high quality fruit the natural way; Emma with her country charm and amazing ability to get stuff done; Gus with his professor smarts and fascination with the land; and Swan, with her endless viticulture knowledge.
All four adore life’s simple pleasures, and you can taste it in every drop. But while the joy they take from a table filled with food, family and fun is unmistakable, it’s also clear as mud that they are seriously progressive winemakers driven by sustainable viticulture and small-batch production.
Joining forces, this crew knew they needed a design partner who truly understood their products, drive and ethos. Their three labels, Tapi, Carpenter Rocks and Culley Road, are sold exclusively online, where aesthetic is everything. We, of course, couldn’t wait to rise to the challenge. What a dream working alongside four driven, talented and sincere souls, who have reminded us that with good mates and good wine around you, anything is possible.
