Two Hands was born in September 1999 when Michael and Richard sat at a friend’s engagement party and decided it was time to make their own wine and market it on the world stage.

The original aim was, and still is, to make the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized growing regions throughout Australia. With so much Australian wine being sold around the globe under multi-region labels in a formulaic style, the intention was to break the mould and showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional and vineyard characteristics by allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines.

Our brand philosophy is ‘Quality without compromise’ and this is central driving all the decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion. Two Hands set out to be unique and innovative in our approach. This is reflected in everything from the names of the wines, through to the wines themselves.

Today Two Hands is owned by Michael Twelftree, together with General Manager Pierre-Henri. With Michael and Pierre sharing an ambitious vision for the future, Two Hands next chapter in the journey is sure to be exciting.
