San Marino Italian Bar & Restaurant - the United Kingdom
The J&J story started from a humble beginning back in the late 1990s when Jeff & Joan Mason planted the now Rivers Lane organic single vineyard on their 5.5ha property. In 1998, the vineyard was planted in Shiraz variety and the first vintage was in the year 2000. The name J&J simply comes from the initials of Jeff & Joan.
In 2010, the vineyard commenced the organic certification process and became fully accredited and ACO certified by 2012. At the Rivers Lane vineyard, the superb growing conditions that has made McLaren Vale internationally renowned is equalled by J&J’s dedication to organic viticulture, sustainability and a family tradition of excellence.
Many of our wines have been recently awarded by James Halliday, and by both Winestate and Wine Showcase magazines.
The J&J way is always to produce consistent high quality wines true to the character of the acclaimed McLaren Vale area.
Our Cellar Door Tasting Room offers tastings of a selection of current vintages daily. We offer a range of local produce platters and smaller plates to complement our wines. Stay a little longer, enjoy the comforts of the deck overlooking the vineyard or grab a picnic rug and breathe in the fresh air while indulging on the very best the Vale has to offer.
Our journey from a simple beginning as a single vineyard grape grower to now as a renowned and awarded family run wine producer has been an enjoyable one. We look forward to continuing to produce premium wines and to work closely with all our customers to promote our brand.
