Get to know thy Winemaker

Raidis Estate is a passionately family-run winery. At the helm of the good ship Raidis is husband and wife duo, Steven and Emma Raidis.

 

Most days you can find Emma and Stevo in the cellar door, chasing a goat or two around the vineyard, or traversing around Australia promoting their love of their wines.

 

Want to know more? Well, here is five questions in five minutes with Emma and Stevo to see what makes them tick.

 

Stevo

 

What is the strangest thing you have done to sell a bottle of wine?

I have one stockist in Sydney who always takes me out “surfing” on reef breaks. I can’t surf, so I always come out bleeding, but he is a very good stockist and a good guy.

 

Favourite food and why?

Only one??? John Rymill’s duck curry. It’s been a long time since I had it, as he banned me from it for one smart ass comment. It’s a beautifully rich and flavoursome dish that goes really well with an elegant Shiraz.   

 

What wine varietal would you love to add to your list? 

Prosecco because it's sooooo hot right now. It should grow well down here, but who knows what the next few years hold for us.

 

Where would you love to see your wine on a wine list/ in a bottle shop?

The place I love seeing our wines is on a table full of people and food shown on someone’s social media feed. That’s why we make wine; to be enjoyed with friends and food.

 

Where would you love to travel one day?

 I would love to go to Mongolia. It looks like such a harsh yet beautiful country.

 

Emma

 

What is the strangest thing you have done to sell a bottle of wine? 

I honestly can’t think of one… (But we know she’d have some good stories up her sleeves…)

 

Favourite food and why?

Hmmm – this is a hard question for me… probably any good burger made with fresh ingredients. It’s like the perfect blend of all food groups & amazing flavours!

 

What wine varietal would you love to add to your list? 

Prosecco, because I really would like a sparkling in our range, and it will grow well here which is a factor we always need to consider.

 

Where would you love to see your wine on a wine list/ in a bottle shop?

Everywhere! The more places the better… I really don’t care where they are as long as people are enjoying them.

 

Where would you love to travel one day? 

Cuba – the food, music & culture seem so rich & colourful. I would love to go there!
