Story: Like many good ideas, Konpira Maru was born between two friends in a pub. Al and Sam both have a background working in the retail, production, and education sectors of the wine industry, so striking out on their own was the natural next step for them to take. 2014 was their first vintage, which resulted in a tiny production using fruit from trusted farmers in Queensland and Victoria who shared the belief that the rest of the world was not truly experiencing the variety available in Australian wine. Their Mt. Midoriyama pet nats are hilariously inspired by Ninja Warrior. A traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier may feel a bit familiar, but these gentlemen are aware they’re not making Champagne, rather simply guiding us toward the idea that crafting wine with care will give you a tangible reward.
