The Australian company Two Hands Wines was founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz with the goal to show the world all potential of the Shiraz grape variety, coming from the best soils of Australia. The first vintage was released in 2000.
Focus on Shiraz
Two Hands has its own vineyards in 6 different regions, as well as its own teams of winegrowers who work on the one and only purpose: exploit the maximum potential of each soil, even the very small plot of land, in order to bring out all regional characteristics and diversity of Australian Shiraz, also known as Syrah.
Every plot is managed in an independent way, from the stage of grape harvests, including fermentation, ageing in oak barrel, up to the bottling, with the intention of allowing the wine to express its identity in the optimum way. From the beginning, Two Hands promises to produce organic wines. « Quality without compromise», is the vision of this firm, from the creation of the names of their wines and labels which accompany them.
This unique character has led the company to a leader position in the wine market, and brought international recognition, since the wines from Two Hands are distributed in 24 countries.
The famous critic Robert Parker admitted Two Hands as being «the most qualitative wine merchant at the South of the Equator». Also, in 2012, Two Hands was named in the Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year in the prestigious Wine Spectator magazine; record never achieved before by anyone.
