Our mission

To produce a selected range of outstanding cool climate boutique wines at affordable prices.

Riposte is an entirely family owned and run boutique winery. Tim, Dale and Nick form a close-knit team that is guided by the winemaking philosophy to be ‘hands on’ at every stage from vineyard to bottle. Each vineyard site is carefully selected for quality and its suitability for producing varietal character. Tim and son Nick work closely with the growers at every stage, ensuring grapes are picked at the optimum stage of ripeness, vibrancy and freshness.

In the winery Tim and Nick carefully craft the wines in small batches maximising flavour and complexity creating wines of great distinction that preserve the character of the Adelaide Hills, South Australia’s premier cool climate region.

With a long history of judging and  currently chairman of judges of the National Cool Climate Wine Show in Bathurst, Tim enjoys the opportunity to see a wide range of Australian cool climate wines and  Nick is also a wine judge providing an ongoing overview of winemaking trends across Australia.

Riposte Wines are sold to selected retail outlets and on premise throughout Australian and exported to various international markets.
