“From the moment we laid eyes on the land, we knew we had discovered something special..”
That something special was rich undulating fields in the shadows of Mt Ida, Heathcote, Central Victoria. Tony and Linda Hunter’s vision was to create a family-run boutique vineyard where quality, passion and energy were reflected in the wine.
Tony’s great great grandfather, Pietro D’Orsa had a vineyard! Saguine’s first vintage had already been bottled before the family discovered that their heir had planted vines nearby in the late 1800’s. On visiting this site, the Hunter family found 6 remnant vines and had them DNA checked to determine their origin. One remains a mystery, so the family planted a special vineyard from it.
For this ancient survivor it will be a new spring, another youth, a sanguine rebirth. So, with this special place comes this very special wine, named after their ancestor…It was in the blood all along.
