Producer Profile

Paralian is the love child of Charlie Seppelt and Skye Salter. They met while working at Hardy’s Tintara back in 2008 and after a collective 46 vintages all over the world, decided to start something of their own. This is the first vintage of Paralian and I’m delighted to be featuring it on Wine Theory. These are wonderful wines made by beautiful people. Certainly ones to watch!
