ABOUTHANDPICKED WINES

We Invite You to Travel the World, One Wine at a Time.

Handpicked is a contemporary and dynamic Australian wine company with a unique business model. Unlike most wineries, we do not limit ourselves to one region or style. Instead we aim to lead wine lovers on a journey through the world’s fine wine regions. We invite you to travel the world, one wine at a time…

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

The Art of Curation

Curating Wines From Around The World

The Handpicked story grew from the simple, yet bold desire to bring the world of wine under one label. We 'handpick' the wine regions and grape varieties from around Australia and beyond to craft a global portfolio of wines which all reflect a supreme sense of place.

A Team of Wine Experts

Handpicked is made up of a team of experienced winemakers, viticulturalists and wine lovers. Making wines across the world means our winemakers are constantly busy travelling to ensure we produce the highest quality wines from each and every region.

How We Do It?

It's a bold idea, but it works!

We achieve this diverse portfolio through our vineyards in Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Margaret River and Barossa Valley and through established partnerships with vignerons in other regions. Our two winemakers work closely with local producers to ensure our wines reflect the quality and regional character we are looking for.
