Natural questioners and observers, Sarah Adamson and Greg Lane have honed their winemaking craft for 13 years, traveling the world with unstoppable curiosity and many years of dreaming before finally launching Scout Wines in 2017. One from the deep south of New Zealand with a natural instinct for wine from her parents, the other from South Australia playing hide and seek in their grandpa’s wine cellar, together they combine passion and experience from two of the greatest winemaking regions in the whole Pacific. These wines are aptly named after Scout from the book To Kill A Mockingbird, a character defined by the same curiosity that drove Sarah and Adam to craft the impeccable wines that they do today, traveling far and wide to learn, understand and appreciate great wine. One part influence from great winemakers and one part personal flair creates a range of wines that is uniquely their own, producing elegant and refreshing wines that they want to drink themselves as much as they want to share them with the world!
