Hither & Yon is a beautiful McLaren Vale wine label with family at its core. Tell us a bit about the family behind the iconic South Australian label.
The Leask's have been growing here in McLaren Vale since 1980, when our Mum and Dad acquired our first bit of land here, after moving from the Hunter Valley in NSW. That farm was mixed, with vines, almonds, olives, citrus and grazing. Thinking back to this and now, we have always had this diversity and desire to be different. In particular, this led us to our passion for the environment and our commitment to local community. My brother Richard and I are fortunate to have grown up here and we are try to improve it every day for the future. The Leask clan is originally from the Orkney Islands in far north Scotland, so we kind of have this wild nature in the blood I think!
