Main & Cherry

Award-winning winemaker Michael Sexton produces small batches of distinctive wines, favouring Indian Runner ducks over pesticides, and working gently by hand, shovel and a small basket-press instead of high-tech machines.

The original Main & Cherry vineyard was planted in 1996, at Main Road in Cherry Gardens, nestled amidst the rolling foothills of Adelaide. Michael grew up tending the family vineyard and went on to graduate from Oenology at Adelaide University in 2003, before working many vintages, both locally and abroad.

Now, Michael owns and lives on another vineyard above the Clarendon township in the McLaren Vale wine region. His kids, Audrey and Tom, ride on the tractors and ‘help’ with picking and plunging, often with a flock of ducks, sheep, nieces and nephews in tow.

Michaels wines are fun and bright, He focuses on Mediterranean varieties which suit the climate where he sources fruit from. Our favourites include his Sangiovese and Fiano.
