Phil Christiansen formerly worked at Hardy's, where he was a cellar hand. Since then, he has gone solo, making Shiraz in small, but ever increasing quantities. He continues to contract making wine for other small independents.
The label for Longwood Estate wines is from Australian native (Aboriginal) artists. The works are original and have a social consciousness. It's a very intriguing concept that the owner feels truly goes to the heart of what Australia does best – making great Shiraz and producing incredible Aboriginal artwork.
