TroubleChild Wines đź’ś

Valentine’s Day may come and go, but cute wine stories are forever…so here’s one. Darcy and Loc are two trans, non-binary folk who met at university five years ago and knew little about wine before starting as farmhands at Jauma Farm – the legendary patch of grass in the Adelaide Hills run by the pioneering James and Sophie Erskine.
After lots of long days in the vineyard and ongoing chats about environmental stewardship, land rights, queerness, gender and winemaking, the idea for a collab was floated and so TroubleChild Wines was born. It’s a politically-minded, community-focused project all about challenging norms, resisting labels and celebrating visibility in what’s often perceived as a male-dominated, heteronormative industry.
Darcy and Loc’s first release consists of two wines from the 2023 vintage – the Smells Live Love pet nat and the Better Together grenache. The first is a 50/50 blend of grenache and chenin blanc, which the duo describes as “supple and slurpalicious”. The second is a straight-up grenache, sloshy and juicy and destined for a stint in the fridge before opening. Much like their makers, they’re honest and raw wines: light-footed, fresh-feeling and free of sulphur…perfect, in other words, for seeing out the end of summer. Check ’em out.
