Wine Tasting at Alpha Box & Dice

Alpha Box & Dice, nestled in the heart of McLaren Vale, South Australia, embarks on an ambitious Alphabet of Wine project, crafting a diverse portfolio that captures the essence of South Australia's rich viticultural landscape. Since its inception in 2008, AB&D has been at the forefront of showcasing alternative, particularly Mediterranean, varieties, pushing the boundaries of traditional winemaking to produce innovative and characterful wines. Each wine, represented by a letter of the alphabet, is a testament to the winery's dedication to exploring the myriad styles and varieties across McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, and Barossa Valley, aiming to complete a varietal 'alphabet' that encompasses the region's viticultural diversity.

Under the guidance of Head Winemaker Sam Berketa, Alpha Box & Dice's winemaking philosophy is deeply rooted in innovation, drinkability, and the authentic expression of each vineyard's fruit and terroir. Sam's global winemaking experiences, from the local terrains of McLaren Vale to the vineyards of Germany, Italy, and the USA, have profoundly influenced AB&D's wine styles. This approach ensures that each bottle from Alpha Box & Dice not only reflects the winemaker's unique vision but also the distinctive characteristics of South Australia's premier wine regions.
