About Izway Wines
The winemaker – Craig Isbel
Izway wines was conceived on a handshake between two Aussie wine makers in a chateau in Beaujolais. Brian Conway and Craig Isbel met during vintage at Chateau de Bluizard in 2002 and after many nights drinking pastis they decided to start their own winery in the Barossa Valley.
Craig got to work seeking out half a tonne of Ebenezer Shiraz from a mate, and this fruit was crafted into the first ‘Bruce’ in 2003, with just the one barrique made. Izway Wines has evolved slowly and organically from there.
Even though Craig loves a great bottle of red as much as (and probably more than) the next bloke, his real passion is not the search for the greatest vintages, the greatest grape varieties or the greatest regions in the world.
Craig’s passion lies with a pair of pruning sheers in his hands, kicking the red clay dirt at Seppeltsfield and climbing over dusty barrels with a siphon hose in one hand and a glass in the other. He loves nothing more than a hard days work and sipping on a glass of Mates at the end of it.
Izway’s wine making is simple and minimalistic, based on old world, hands on techniques. Limiting additions to allow for a true expression of the terrior from which the grapes are sources to shine through. Craig and Brian both love the purity and energy of natural wines and these are the styles that they look to emulate.
