Express Winemakers is the brainchild of Ryan O’Meara in Great Southern, Western Australia. He started out in 2011 with the intention to make delicious drinking wine at an affordable price. He was looking for freshness and texture, rather than sit-and-contemplate-the-meaning-of-life wine. Since then, the label has evolved in some ways. Brightness and natural acidity are still a staple in the line-up, but his priorities have also shifted since leasing vineyards of his own in 2016. Now he looks towards organic viticulture, minimal intervention winemaking, and low sulphur counts (just enough to protect the fruit). His wines are fun and playful and designed to be enjoyed tout de suite (right now).
