We are Simon Jones and Charles O’Brien, long time friends who formed Château Acid in 2017 out of a desire to make non-interventionist wines of place. Our fruit comes from old vines at 400m asl near the town of Canowindra in the Central Ranges of New South Wales, Australia. The vineyard has been certified organic and farmed using biodynamics since planting.
Fruit is picked to retain acidity and maintain drinkability. All work is done by hand and gravity. No additions are made in the winemaking process and wines are given time in barrel and in bottle to resolve, stabilise and flourish before they are released. As these are living wines they will continue to evolve with patience.
