Purple Hands Wines

Tuesday August 23rd 7pm

Lyndoch Hall

When two good mates get together, one the Chief Winemaker with a major winery, the other with a passion for wine, the inevitable had to happen and Purple Hands Wines was created. Craig Stansborough and Mark Slade started Purple Hands in 2006 from humble beginnings. Just over a tonne of handpicked Shiraz was crushed and barrel fermented in Craig’s shed making around 100 dozen. Then came the hard part – finding a name for their new wine brand. Anyone who has made red wine will know what a pair of purple stained hands looks like! A red winemakers’ hands become stained purple during vintage due to the constant contact with grape skins and the juice. And of course, when winemakers are busy, they wipe their hands on their shirt. That was the inspiration behind Purple Hands Wines.

 Kick off the night with 2021 Colours of the South Pinot Blanc and cheese and nibbles
 Settle in with a guided comparative tasting of 8 of the Purple Hands cellar.
 Enjoy a delicious meal of Deutsche Wurst with Biersosse : German Sausages: Bratwurst, Brockwurst and Kransky with a rich, dark Beer sauce. Served with Potato mash, finely chopped kale, and hot Sauerkraut. Plenty of Purple hands wines will be on the table.


Bid in an auction of the last 12 bottles of the 2019 Planta Circa Ancestor Vine Grenache in 2 bottle lots. (Winner Best South Australian Red Wine 2021 Adelaide Wine Show)
