Ministry of Clouds

Bernice Ong and Julian Forwood are the duo behind Ministry of Clouds.A partnership in every sense of the word, and with an experience in the wine industry working for renowned Australian wineries the likes of Wirra Wirra, Woodstock, Mountadam, Yalumba and Moët Hennessy, in 2012 the pair decided to take fate into their own hands.

An idea conceived with the support of extraordinary friends saw the pair leave their jobs and chance fate on a beguiling, exhilarating obsession that would take them from McLaren Vale for their reds, to Clare and Tasmania for their whites.
An entity of opposites – methodical and organic, thoughtful and brash, East and West, yin to yang – this is an amalgam of style and soul, and the reflection of a shared vision for the future.

McLaren Vale is their heartland, where their reds are made with grapes from their own 11ha plot and other carefully selected, often ancient vines. They favour a modern take on classic styles and meticulous attention to detail. Through their wines, they celebrate those growers who persisted while others begged them to turn their land to other pursuits.

    • Ministry of Clouds Riesling 2023

      Of all the many grape varieties, Riesling is the most transparent expression of a vineyard site.  We have long loved the more crystalline expressions of Clare Valley Riesling, which embrace the exquisite risk inherent in delicacy and fragility. Never a wine about winemaker ego, or manhandling in the winery, just...
