Last year, in July 2022, we had the pleasure to release, for the first time in Australia, Alecia Moore’s Two Wolves wines and for this occasion, Patrick Walsh wrote these lines :
” Back in October 2019, when the world was a very different place, I was getting ready for work one morning and as you do was checking the morning emails on my phone. Just like any other day. For whatever reason one in particular stood out and made it through the morning ‘cull’. Thank God! Beautifully written by someone who’s name wasn’t immediately familiar to me, it had been sent to both myself and Virginia – which in itself was unusual in the best possible way. Pro tip: if you ever want to grab our attention address your correspondence to the ‘real’ boss as well! The email spoke of a real appreciation of the portfolio and how we go about communicating our love for our producers. Nice. Anyways, an hour later arriving at the office I thought I’d better find out who this Alecia Moore and her ‘Two Wolves’ winery were.
I don’t know if it was Dr Google or the office team who educated me the quickest but pretty much immediately the penny dropped. Wow, this could be exciting. I say could because – hand on heart – our thought process was, is and always will be that if the wines do not fit with our stable in terms of quality and philosophy, and/or if we can’t imagine having the people behind those wines at our kitchen table at home and getting on the Negronis with afterwards, then no dice… no matter who you are! Turns out we need not have worried….
What followed were a few emails back and forth, and then some phone-calls one of which one in particular sticks in my mind. Again, it was morning and this time I was on the run from Kyneton down to Melbourne and as Alecia and I started talking over the top of each other about great wines and winemakers – she’s a talker, you know – it was immediately clear that I was talking to Alecia the winemaker not P!nk the Rockstar and it’s been that way ever since. Make no mistake, Two Wolves is as serious a wine-growing operation as any in the CellarHand portfolio. Big call I know, but fact.
Samples were received and tasted by the full CellarHand team, and met with strong, unconditional approval. Plans were made. And then Covid hit. Our booked trip to the Santa Ynez valley in May 2020 to see the vineyard for ourselves kiboshed. 2021 arrived, hopes were high, many Zooms were attended, but plans dashed again. We all know the story.
Anyways here we are with a tiny allocation of the Two Wolves wines finally in our cellar. It’s really frigging exciting. CellarHand has never wanted to be the biggest – we just strive to be among the best. This I reckon is another piece of that puzzle.”

Hi. Do you know if Two Wolves will be making any white wines or just the reds?
Hi Jenneen, Alecia does make a very small amount of white wine, though mostly reds. Hopefully we have a small parcel of whites later in the year.
Is there an approximate availability date ?
I’d like to go on the waiting list for any two wolves wines . Which come available here in Australia.
