Please note this is an 18+ only event.
A bit about Brendan Carter:
Brendan Carter - director, chief thinker and tinkerer of Ochre Nation - an organisation that encompasses Unico Zelo Winery, Harvest Grower's Co-Operative and Applewood Distillery. Together with his wife, Laura Carter - they seek out ways to align profitability with sustainability whilst crafting products that speak of where they come from - the sites, soils, lifestyle and culture of Australia.
Being winemakers, Brendan and Laura are incredibly passionate about the soil and produce here in Australia. It's their contention to showcase products to the rest of the world that embrace Australian native ingredients and pay homage to the custodianship of the indigenous people who maintained the land for thousands of years.
It's this passion that has driven them to start two wine labels, one that protects our farmers and another that protects our future. They have since taken these concepts and started their distillery, applewood. As a brand, they seek Australian identity in the products they craft and the services they offer. Brendan’s hope is that these Australian stories can one-day be heard on a global scale.
