Making seriously delicious wines that we love to share

At Innocent Bystander our passion for sharing seriously good wine – not too seriously – unites us. There’s nothing we love more, than to rise above the noise and bring some joy to wine’s all-too-sober conversations.

We make the wines we love to drink and share, from delectable Pinot Noir to effervescent Moscato, starting every vintage with the finest grapes from our home in the Yarra Valley and beyond. From here, the serious winemaking bit is easy. Gentle coercion in open fermenters or lazy days maturing in barrel, we treat each parcel of fruit individually to draw out its unique character.

Our wines can be found across the globe, but if you want the full Innocent Bystander experience then come by our place in Healesville. It’s a bar, a restaurant and your home away from home, serving our full range of wines along with shared dishes, wood-fired pizza, paella and other tasty treats. Here our wine isn’t the centre of attention, you are!

Join us for our live tasting and cocktail masterclass @ 5pm tonight on IG, featuring the new Mea Culpa Pinot Noir, Syrah and the tastiest mulled wine recipe you've ever seen. 

Here's the recipe below for those playing at home; we've used Tempranillo for the generous fruit and earthy spice that works wonders in the saucepan alongside a few well-chosen spices. The end result is as warm and wholesome as a bear hug. 

What you'll need...
1 Bottle of Innocent Bystander Tempranillo
200ml water
6 pieces cardamon
4 pieces cloves
4 piece star anise
2 stick cinnamon
150g Sugar

Putting it all together...
Combine wine, water & sugar in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Turn off the heat and add all the spices. Allow the spices to infuse for 20 minutes.
Strain away the spice and serve hot in a mug with a sprinkle of love and a slice of orange.
