Purple Hands Wines
When two good mates get together, one being one of Australia’s most experienced winemaker and the other in possession of an insatiable passion for wine, the inevitable had to happen and Purple Hands Wines came to be in 2006. From humble beginnings and a first vintage of 1,000 bottles, Craig Stansborough and Mark Slade have steered Purple Hands to become a highly regarded and exciting artisan Barossa winemaker.
At the 2019 Barossa Wine Show, Purple Hands Wines were awarded 8 gold medals and 2 trophies, including ‘Most Outstanding Small Winemaker’.
