About Us Our Wines

Hello, and welcome to Jemari Wines.

photo from Tuscany

Our names are John & Cenza Basile.
We own and operate Jemari wines Estate which is a small boutique winery specialising
in “Just Red” wines.

Our goal has always been to produce good quality wine at an affordable price, and we believe that we have succeeded.

We were both raised and educated in Melbourne.

John chose a career in nursing and became one of the first few men to enter the profession. After almost 35 years of nursing he has retired to pursue his other passion as a vigneron.

Cenza’s love of languages inspired her to become a language teacher. She joined the Catholic education system and is well respected and loved by her students and peers alike. She regularly leads student tour groups to Italy and France as part of their language education experience.

She is truly passionate in her work and is not quite ready to retire from her first love. However she still manages to be hands on and is an integral part of all operations at Jemari Wines.

The small nature of our business allows us to manage everything from the vineyard to the winery. In doing so, we can keep our cost base very low and therefore pass on the savings to our members.
Learn more about the Jemari Wine Club.

We produce a limited quantity of fine red wine so our members will always have first access to our new releases.

Our small vineyard is situated on rich farming soil in the tiny location of Dhurringile, in the Goulburn Valley in north central Victoria.

It is a warm climate region which is ideally suited to red varieties.

Jemari vineyard grows Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small number of Viognier vines . We also source a small quantity of Merlot grapes from a nearby vineyard, which as with the Viognier , is used in our special blends.

All work at Jemari Wines is carried out by hand. This includes pruning, canopy management, bottling and labelling.

Our wine does not undergo filtration thereby maintaining its full characteristics.

We put in a lot of effort so that you can appreciate our wine, so please…

Enjoy a Jemari Red, whenever you break bread!

Meet Your Maker

john_basile

Hi, my name is John Basile and I discovered my passion for making wine much later in life.
I am a true believer in the philosophy that “good quality wine is made in the vineyard”. So that’s where I spend most of my time throughout the season.

It is fair to say that by harvest time I have become intimately acquainted with my fruit as I have nurtured it from the early onset of bunch formation through flowering and fruit set and finally veraison. After harvest and crushing, there is very minimal intervention in the cellar.

The winemaking process for our premium red wines is based on our observations noted during a European wineries tour that Cenza and I indulged in for my 50th birthday.

We use open vat fermentation, storage in American and French oak for up to 2 years and cellaring for up to 12 months once in the bottle.

My wines are of a limited quantity so I allow “time” for them to reach their full potential prior to release. With 14 vintages already under my belt I am pleased with the results since having adopted this process.

I hope you will be pleased as well. So please……

Enjoy a Jemari Red, whenever you break bread!

There’s a drop of love, a few measures of laughter and a splash of fun in every bottle of Jemari.
