Who made it?

At Innocent Bystander, their passion for sharing seriously good wine – not too seriously – unites them. There’s nothing they love more, than to rise above the noise and bring some joy to wine’s all-too-sober conversations. They make the wines they love to drink and share, from delectable Pinot Noir to effervescent Moscato, starting every vintage with the finest grapes from their home in the Yarra Valley and beyond. From there, the serious winemaking bit is easy. Gentle coercion in open fermenters or lazy days maturing in barrel, they treat each parcel of fruit individually to draw out its unique character.
