Aussie expats, Adam Louder and Nancy Panter, met under the Californian sun and got to know each other over a decent glass of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Adam was an up and coming winemaker with a thirst for knowledge. Nancy was a corporate communications whizz, talented at creating great experiences that delighted people.
In 2015, after 19 years working in vineyards and wineries over 28 harvests in five regions and three continents, Adam launched SubRosa with Nancy in his ruggedly beautiful home region, the Grampians, in Victoria.
“sub rosa” (sub rose-a) adv Lit in secret.
[Latin, literally: under the rose; in ancient times a rose was hung over a table as a mark of secrecy]
Adam is passionate about the high quality grapes grown in his home region and the neighbouring Pyrenees area. Being a local, he has great relationships with the growers allowing him to source the best quality fruit he can get his hands on.
95 Points, James Halliday, “Estate-grown, matured for 16 months in French barriques, neither fined nor filtered. Bright in colour and light in body (by Grampians standards). Its mouthfeel, balance and studied length are on another level, with vibrant red fruits, spices and feather-light tannins.”
