Amber & Taras Ochota


Ochota Barrels, Australia

Amber and Taras Ochota began their wine journey in 2000, with the aim of creating wines in a natural way, with low intervention in the vineyard and in the cellar. They found the perfect place for them in the Basket Range region, near the ocean between McLaren Vale and Borossa Valley.

"A holistic approach from autumn to autumn in the vineyard, with the philosophy of going back to basics to create something delicious and unique with mother nature." - Taras Ochota
