Shut the Gate

4 Star Winery Rating - Halliday Wine Companion

"the expected and the unexpected, united by their quality...

Shut the Gate is the venture of Richard Woods and Rasa Fabian, which took shape after five years' involvement in the rebranding of Crabtree Watervale Wines, followed by 18 months of juggling consultancy roles. During this time Richard and Rasa set the foundations for Shut the Gate, with striking and imaginative labels (and parables) catching the eye. The engine room of the business is the Clare Valley, where the wines are contract-made and the grapes for many of the two ranges of wines are sourced. They have chosen their grape sources and contract winemakers with considerable care." - James Halliday
