Key Personnel Petra de Mooy Petra has always loved, art, design, photogrpahy and words. Combining all of these into a career has been the fulfillment of these interests. She loves working with all of the creatives on the Fleurieu to showcase the best the region has to offer. Jason Porter Jason has worked as a graphic designer and creative director both locally and overseas for over thirty years.

brand culture

Scarpantoni Wines Originating from the Abruzzi region of central Italy on the Adriatic Coast (which boasts some of the world’s finest wines), winemaking is in the Scarpantoni family’s blood. In 1958 Domenico Scarpantoni purchased his first piece of land in McLaren Vale, where he would plant the first of many vines. Those first plantings are today part of the award-winning, family-owned and operated label that has become one of the region’s prized gems. In 2019, forty is certainly the magic number for Scarpantoni Wines. Now in its fortieth year of production, the business has forty hectares under vines, producing approximately forty thousand dozen wines per year. The Scarpantoni brothers, Michael and Filippo, have experimented with different varieties to carefully craft wines that are consistently of the highest standard and ‘classically McLaren Vale…

welcome to flm

From the FLM team This year we celebrate two big milestones: our winter issue marked seven years in print and this, our Spring issue, is number 30! It feels like the eternal optimism we have for our product and this region has paid off, ably helped along by a great team. As we gear up for the change of season and gratefully usher in the warmer months, we also temporarily farewell our Advertising Manager Holly Wyatt as she takes maternity leave. We’ll miss her bright personality and determined spirit but wish her all the best with baby number two. In Holly’s place, we welcome the equally lovely Kirsty Gannon who will continue working with our advertising partners. Kirsty comes from a film and television production background and while she’s only recently moved to…

porchland 2019

When The Porch Sessions first launched in 2013, they were about sharing a relaxed and intimate vibe with a small group of like-minded music lovers. Over the years, these award-winning events have grown to include the annual festival of nice things, Porchland. The popular event is on again this November and will be hosted in a clearing next to The Range War Memorial Hall, just outside of Willunga. Porchland builds on the original Porch Sessions concept which came to founder and creator of all things Porch, Sharni Holder, as she was listening to and playing music with friends on her parents’ porch. The neighbours soon hauled their bench over to join in and the idea to hold small gigs in gardens and backyards – a travelling music festival – was born. Upping…

the story of samson tall

Driving around McLaren Vale, there’s a few names that come up again and again. McMurtrie and Strout lend their names to roads threading through the vineyards. The Pedler name is bestowed on a road, a creek and a cottage. But Samson Tall? An early settler in the region, Tall has nary a dirt track to his name. That is until Paul Wilson and Heather Budich chose Samson Tall as the name for their winery. Located on McMurtrie Road, Samson Tall – the winery – makes its home in the Bethany Wesleyan Chapel built in 1854, while Samson Tall – the man – now rests in the cemetery out the back. ‘Samson started the property and so we thought it was important that he would be honoured in the naming of the…
