The Happy Winemaker

Jean-Paul, The Happy Winemaker, attends both markets each month.

Jean-Paul was trained as a winemaker in France,and has worked in Australia for Hanging Rock Winery and Lethbridge Wines. Since the arrival of his second son he has decided to make the leap and go full time for his own wine (and be a house dad).

He produces white, red, rose & sparkling wines and by Christmas 2020 will release a Vermouth and Dessert wine.

Based in Ballarat, he aims to make wines true to their variety and origin. Working as natural as possible, using indigenous yeast, minimal sulfites, a soft extraction method and when possible, partial whole-bunch for texture and a savory note.

SPECIALS:    Currently delivery is free in the Ballarat region (4 bottle minimum). Plus buy a case of wine and receive 2 bottles for free (so 14 bottles of wine for the price of 12)
