'A Small Change But A Good One' is a motto for business for both Rhys and Andrew, owners of Small Change Wines. Not only do they seek out ancient vineyards around Australia from which to craft excellent wines, but they are improving lives whilst they do it.
Using their wine business as a platform for social change, they invest in a micro-finance organisation called KIVA, that in turn loans money to businesses that accelerate female education programs around the world.
From humble beginnings as cellarhands (whose main job is cleaning!), they have both worked in a wide range of roles within the wine industry, culminating in their own project, Small Change Wines.
Their travels take them to Beechworth in Victoria, to Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia, and to Langhorne Creek sitting near the shores of Lake Alexandrina with its cooling "maritime" impact .
They work exclusively with established vineyards, enabling them to consistently produce wines of great character and intensity. Every year brings with it new challenges, but also new opportunities. For Small Change, they have the chance to create great wines and make a difference to those in need whilst doing so!
