Pure Wine Difference
The team at Ascella is very proud of our pure wines. We believe the best and most traditional wines have the fewest potentially harmful chemicals and additives. The highest quality, greatest tasting wines are also made naturally. Pure Wines are not just better for dinner they are also better for you, for our environment and better for vineyard workers and neighbours.
What are Pure Wines?
We make our wines using only organic grapes from our secluded vineyard in The Hunter Valley. Nothing goes on our grapes so nothing ends up in your bottle but delicious, well balanced, pure wine.
Why Pure Wines?
Wine grapes are one of the most heavily sprayed of all crops with a wide range of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Grapes are a sweet fruit and make a great dinner for all kinds of unwanted pests. Studies have found these chemical residues in non-organic wines around the world.
At Ascella's vineyard we encourage a natural ecosystem so the vines are stronger and the plant and animal life lives in balance. Doing this means we don't have to use harmful chemicals.
The study out of Europe was the first to shine a light on the chemicals in a typical bottle of wine. We've tested our wines using the same methods to ensure their purity and high quality. We've also tested the wines around our own dinner table to ensure their great taste. We're proud to offer you the purest, premium wine available in Australia.
All Ascella Pure Wines have been tested for purity by Advanced Analytical Australia Pty Ltd, a NATA world body recognized test facility. We are pleased to report Advanced Analytical found no chemicals within the threshold of measurement and limit of reporting, and certainly none of the carcinogens prevalent in most fungicides and herbicides.
We use only natural preservatives in our wines. This means they have a lower sulphur content than many other wines. We don't eliminate preservatives completely because preservative free wines generally have a short shelf-life.

All of our wines are vegetarian friendly.
