Lisa and Justin Jenkins have a clear, dynamic idea of what makes an alluring wine, loaded with charisma. With 30+ years of combined hospitality experience at some of Melbourne’s iconic wine bars and restaurants, they’ve tasted some of the world’s best wines. With this in mind, they’ve turned their hands to winemaking. At the core of their wines are flavour, texture and enjoyment.
In 2016, the couple returned to South Gippsland where Justin grew up, to make wine. The name ‘Fleet Wines’ is born from the couple’s openness to sourcing grapes from further afield. Working with tiny amounts, these wines are celebrated for being of the moment and limited in their release.
