The Ochota story began in 2000, Taras and Amber Ochota had been travelling around some of the world’s best wine and surf regions, and decided they wanted to make premium wines back home in South Australia. In Taras' own words "We just want to produce something delicious and gorgeous for all of us to enjoy with none of the nasties and more of the love". Taras Ochota died suddenly in 2020. He was a huge talent, a friend to many and will be sorely missed. His wife Amber and the Ochota team are now continuing the project.
