Minimum Wines: Victoria’s carbon-negative organic winemaker
You may have heard about Minimum Wines through the grapevine - the vegan, low-sulphur and carbon-negative winemaker from the small town of Toolamba making a splash.
In the small Victorian town of Toolamba live around 1,000 people and a sustainable, organic winemaker called Minimum Wines, founded by Matt Purbrick.
“At Minimum, we’re all about simplicity, big into energy, big into trying to capture the vibe of our vines,” Purbrick says.
The winery sees ‘wine’ and ‘organic wine’ as one and the same, producing wines that “tap into how wine was always made”.
“From the outset we said, ‘We have to make sure this is something that is beneficial to the planet, not something that takes away from it’.”
While the founder may be biased to boast how good his produce is, RACV Club Sommelier Christian Maier can attest "the wine sells itself. It’s vibrant, it’s engaging, and it really speaks about the variety.”
