About Two Hands
Founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz, Two Hands stood out as a winery that adopted a Burgundian approach to showcase the “the diversity of Australian Shiraz” from different regions and vineyards at a time when Australian Shiraz took on a rather monotonous style. The year 2000 marked their first vintage and just a few years later, the 2002 and 2003 vintages of their flagship wine, the Ares, earned a magnificent 98 points from Robert Parker, catapulting Two Hands into the league of elite Barossan producers.
In November 2012, Two Hands was named in Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equalled by any other winery the world over. 'Quality without compromise' is the core value that drives all Two Hands decisions and, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator."
