Golden Child is the project of young yet experienced winemaker James Hamilton. Using grapes grown by his father David from his own vineyard in Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills, James uses his wealth of winemaking experience to bring the wines to bottle.

Having their own 20+-year-old vineyard gives the Hamiltons enormous flexibility with the wines and allows James to craft some pretty unique offerings. The fruit is all hand-picked, fermented with natural yeasts and crafted together gently and with minimum additions. The range is wide, colourful and wholly enjoyable.


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Made from Biodynamically grown Chardonnay from our neighbour Brackenwood Vineyard. This wine was made using red winemaking techniques, an ancient practice known as ‘skin contact’. The resulting wine has loads of texture with exotic ginger, orange zest and intense stone fruit flavours. This wine is vegan friendly and was bottled with minimal additives.

Hand-picked on a cool morning and destemmed into open fermenters for wild yeast fermentation. Ferments were plunged once per day then basket pressed to used Hogs Heads barrels after 35 days on skins. The wine was matured for six months in barrel before bottling without fining or filtration."


differnetdrop.com (2020 Vintage)
"James Hamilton just gets the kind of wines that the younger wine-loving Australian public want on their tables and in their tumblers. Orange wines – white grapes made with time on skins – are very in vogue at the moment. Though some can be challenging or even confronting, it's wines like this that make the perfect gateway into the style. This is Adelaide Hills Chardonnay that spent just over a month on skins. Not too long, but just long enough to give a little powdery grip to the fruit in the mouth. It's a lighter, juicy expression of baby orange wine – and lots of fun to drink!"

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
