Jilly-NebbioloJared Dixon sells everyone’s wines at his parents’ bottle-o. He has a soft spot for his own, though. Jilly is his label. His great-grandad was punished after falling for the Irish maid – the maid’s name was Jilly.

He was sent to New Zealand and left to languish without his former wealth. As the years passed in exile great-grandad was known to call out his love’s name in his sleep, hence the name of this earthy wine.

Of course the only punishment you’d receive these days for loving this wine would be a hangover.

Jared spent four years in Western Australia as assistant winemaker at Houghton Wines in the Margaret River region, after which he moved to the Victorian wine regions as winemaker to Heathcote Winery.

While we’re on labels, Kylie Bridges, the co-owner of the Eltham Pantry, designed the labels for the Jilly range and did a beautiful job using a material label to complement the corked and waxed bottles.
