Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino

Fowles Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino. Vermentino is an aromatic grape variety native to Sardinia. With its late ripening, the variety is well suited to warmer climates and is thriving in the Riverland in Australia. We chose to plant the variety at our Upton Run vineyards to hedge against the threat of climate change, as it is used to the warmer ripening conditions. As the Strathbogie Ranges still remain cool, we are seeing when picked early, the lean green style of this fruit is ideally suited to creating a crisp sparkling wine base.
We started experimenting with Vermentino in our Are You Game? Sparkling a few years ago. The blend has been the wonderfully poetic Chardonnay Pinot Vermentino. We noticed more and more how the fresh lively acidity, pear, apple and citrus fruit characters, helped create the perfect refreshing prosecco style sparkling wine. It was a natural progression to move to a Vermentino dominant blend.
Our new Are You Game? Sparkling Vermentino is pale green in colour with delicate and clean aromas of citrus blossom and pink lady apples. The wine is light and fresh on the palate with apple and mineral characters bursting through, followed by a balanced acidity and good length.

Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino – Served perfectly with fresh yabby, brushed with garlic and parsley butter, seared on the barbeque on damper – a truly Aussie take on the famous San Francisco lobster roll.

We love to source our food from the wild or grow it at home. Nothing beats the taste of food and wine as nature intended it – real: pure, slow grown and full of flavour. So like us, why not keep it real and go wild with food and wine matching…

Fowles Wine

Fowles Wine comes from the very cool-climate of the Strathbogie Ranges in Victoria. Amongst other innovations, they have pioneered wine specifically blended to match wild game. Whilst winning many of the best ‘traditional’ awards in the Australian wine scene and being named a “Winery to Watch” by Wine Spectator, Fowles Wine has a culture of doing things differently! (They are also the largest winery in Australia controlled by Gen Y.)


Victoria is a small state in area, but home to possibly the largest number of wineries in Australia, most of them which are small family-run operations. Victoria’s diverse topography, combining numerous mountain ranges, like the Grampians and the Victorian Pyrenees throughout the centre; flat plains in the northeast; and hilly, ocean-cooled reaches in the Melbourne area, make its vineyards amongst the most scenic in Australia. An enormous range of wine styles are available, and virtually every varietal flourishes in some part of the state.
