Museum of Contemporary Art Partnership 
 

Bimbadgen Wines represent creativity, uniqueness and the desire to look beyond traditions.

These values, shared by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, form the basis of a unique relationship from which these specially labelled wines are born. A 10% donation from all sales of these wines is contributed to the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia for their educational programs.

 

2016 Fiano
Fiano originates from Sicily though in modern times has emerged as the pre-eminant white grape variety in Campania.

Our Hunter Valley version displays aromas of hazelnuts, cardamom spice and honey. This follows onto the palate, balanced with a crisp acid structure and wonderful texture, which is ideally suited to salty meats and seafood. Be daring, try it and enjoy!

 

 

 

2015 Barbera
Barbera originally heralds from Italy, however it is becoming widely planted in Australia. This Barbera, is from the cool climate region of Orange,NSW

With a low natural tannin content and moderate acidity, it is a wine that is ideally suited to cold meats, such as prosciutto or salami, accompanied with a French baguette. With bright red floral aromas and supple tannins, it has a soft gentle approach that will appeal to many. Enjoy, as we enjoyed making it!
