REVIEWS


Some nice things people have said about us…

“There must be a bit of magic behind Bondar. All of the wines have an ethereal quality”- Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2018

“Bondar is certainly a name worth becoming familiar with” - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

“Marquee McLaren Vale vineyard now in the hands of some really good people, really good winemakers. It’s a very exciting proposition. The resulting wines, so far, short as the tenure has been, have been great.” - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
