Quarisa Wines

Established in 2005 and based in the McPherson Ranges in rural New South Wales, the small family business of Quarisa leases winery space and sources fruit from various established regions throughout Australia to craft full-flavoured wines of excellent value. For John and Josephine Quarisa, Australians of Italian heritage, their mottos ‘Passion is everything’ and ‘Never take life too seriously’ perfectly represent the heartfelt commitment they have towards their venture and life in general. Their passion extends beyond the boundaries of the wine industry into their home, their family, and hobbies and through the simplest things associated with everyday life.

A winemaker for over 30 years, during which time he has worked for some of the country’s largest and most well-known wineries including McWilliams, Casella and Nugan Estate, John has been awarded some of Australia’s greatest accolades including both the Jimmy Watson and Stodart Trophies. After becoming an International and Australian Wine Show Judge, John’s experience and passion drove him to develop a range of wines that reflected the attributes he loves in great wines; down to earth, full of character and approachable are words which describe both the winemaking style and the winemaker himself.

In establishing their range of wines the Quarisas have drawn on their greatest passions in life; their children, love of art and Josephine’s artistic talents, their family, heritage and John himself, the fun – loving winemaker. The Johnny Q and Treasures range have been designed with an international audience in mind and the labels draw inspiration from John and his family.  Johnny Q features John actually dressed up for the action shots on the label, while Treasures captures an innocent yet unforgettable moment in time of John and Josephine’s children on a family holiday at the beach.
