Gentle Folk’s Stunning Shiraz from the Adelaide Hills

A perennial favorite of ours, Gentle Folk does an outstanding job at capturing everything we love about wine from this little nook of South Australia. Always expanding on the range and depth of their winemaking, their Village series brings a distinctive highlight to the varietals that they mindfully source from some of the best vineyards throughout the Adelaide Hills region.

“A love of wine, food and growing things eventually drew us away from academic life. The Gentle Folk story began in 2012 after spending a lot of our free time in Basket Range helping and hanging out with James Erskine (Jauma), Alex Schulkin (The Other Right) and other early pioneers of the Basket Range wine movement… We currently produce between six and seven thousand cases annually, employ five lovely humans and farm eight hectares of vines. A kid (Leonard) appeared somewhere in the middle! We hope you have an opportunity to try and enjoy our wines no matter where on earth you find yourself.” – Gareth and Rainbo Belton; Owners, Growers, and Winemakers of Gentle Folk wines.
