Talented duo Mij and Liv have created South by South West, a ‘meandering negociant’ in Margaret River. They started SxSW in 2016 after vintages in Napa, Okanagan and importantly; Italy.
Though Liv is from Margaret River and has a love for it, the duo aren't held hostage by the prestigious sub-region. They chase excellent fruit all over Western Australia, keeping a keen eye out for Italian varieties in particular. The contracts they have with their growers stipulate that the pair take over managing the vineyard each vintage from the point of veraison onwards.
Their simple (yet effective) recipe of great fruit and minimal intervention produces exciting results full of charm and a certain Italian energy.
