We are a wine shop/bar in Daylesford, Vic featuring Western Zone Victorian wines and International greats. Our list focuses on producers and wines that go by the philosophies of minimal intervention in the winery, great practices in the vineyard.
Owners Jen & Owen Latta live in town and have moved from Melbourne to be closer to Owen's family winery - Eastern Peake. Owen's knowledge of the wine industry from being essentially born into it is reflected in the list with lots of little-known, unique producers.
The aim of WINE AND THE COUNTRY is to bring small producers into the public eye and make unknown wines more approachable to the consumer. We try not to categorise our wines too much except there must be passion and integrity there. Anything we'd like to drink is here displayed on our shelves for others to experience too.
