Our Wine

Nardone Baker Wines Pty Ltd produces a range of wine across a number of brands.

The Wara Manta Reserve

The Wara Manta Reserve LabelThe Wara Manta Reserve is an internationally awarded range with gold. silver and bronze medals - it is the best of the best. This super premium range is only produced in years when our winemaker, Brian Light, sources fruit so outstanding it demands special treatment and extra time to develop in choice oak. This Reserve range is produced in limited quantities and should be purchased whenever it is found because it is not uncommon for a vintage to sell out in less time than it took to make.


Nardone Baker

Australian Soil, European HeritageThis is a premium range of enjoyable, fruit-driven wines made to accompany a wide variety of dishes. This range features the popular varieties of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

We also produce a Cabernet Merlot which is a little harder to find because it tends to sell out as soon as it is produced.


Nardone Baker - Sparkling

This is a premium range of sparkling wines to bring fun and delight to any occasion while also satisfying more developed palates. This range features Sparkling Shiraz and Brut Cuvee.


Wara Manta

Wara Manta LabelNot to be confused with The Wara Manta Reserve, this range is a bedfollow of our Nardone Baker range. It is similarly a premium range which is also fruit-driven and features Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The Wara Manta range features a strong Australiana feel with artwork commissioned from a local, Indigenous artist, Amanda Brusnahan.




"In keeping with family TRADITIONS - each year dad would gather with the other grape growers to discuss the harvest. They would taste the grapes, compare weather observations, and everyone started picking at the ideal moment. This continued every day from mid-summer through to early autumn."

- The wines in the TRADITIONS range are indicative of the versatility of Australian wines; each series of wines in this range is unique and highly distinctive.


Treeview Selection

TreeviewThis range is named after one of our favourite properties and serves to remind us that wine is one of life's simple pleasures. Displaying classic varietal characteristics, these wines are a joy to drink, whether gathered around a table or relaxing at your favourite picnic location.


Blaxland's Legacy

Blaxland's LegacyThe Blaxland's Legacy Selection has been crafted by Nardone Baker Wines to honour Geoffrey Blaxland, Australia's wine pioneer who was the first to win international praise for an Australian wine. In 1822, his wine won Silver in London and just five years later he won Gold. Likewise, Nardone Baker chose London for the international launch of its Australian wines and now, thanks to Mr Blaxland's Legacy we have international medals to our name and ship our wine the world over.
