McLaren Vale, South Australia



Research suggests a collaboration between square shaped skulls and the production of the finest produce. The squarer the head the better the wine. But why so many boxhead wine makers in the wine growing regions of South Australia? We may never know, but what we do is this; these wines are delicious and represent great value!

The fact is that a number of German immigrants settled in South Australia and the natives as well as the English realized that the ‘square skull’ shaped Germans were much better at the farming thing than they were. Thus the cause/effect relationship of better grapes to ‘boxhead’ was apparent! 

The aim is to produce a range of wines from South Australia that display all of the flavors the region can deliver at a price that won't break the bank. Justin Lane, owner/winemaker of Alpha Box & Dice leads the Boxhead winemaking. Plainly said these are VARIETALLY CORRECT WINES that drink WELL above their price.
