James & Co. Wines was founded upon a desire to produce limited quantities of approachable, enjoyable and affordable wines. Ricky & Georgie James surround themselves with a menagerie of friends and family who share their love of wines, particularly the Italian styles, an abundant table and lively conversation. For Ricky & Georgie the wines reflect their lives, and the “& Co.” is the co-operative community drawn together and reflecting the Italian style of living with an Australian twist. The ‘and Co’ are a huge part of James and co especially the growers.

Ricky and Georgie intended to buy land in Beechworth and establish a vineyard planted primarily to Sangiovese. They say, ‘Serendipity' led us to Mark Walpole, and we were given the chance to purchase Sangiovese and Cabernet from his Fighting Gully Road Vineyard’ At an elevation of 530 – 580m above sea level, Fighting Gully Road is a stunning vineyard atop of the Murmungee Escarpment and overlooks the fertile Murmungee basin and Ovens Valley.

Over time we have expanded our range with fruit from the well known ‘Bungamero’ vineyard in the Ovens Valley which is owned by Mark and his brother Tim. A picturesque little vineyard in Whourouly South with a north-east aspect and well-drained gravel and red loam soils that grows wonderful Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio and Tempranillo.
