This is our range of single varietals, named for Len Evans' famous restaurant and fine wine store which operated for fifteen years from 1968 at 16-18 Bulletin Place, Sydney. This site is Australia's oldest commercial building, constructed on the then Sydney Cove waterfront in 1832 for Mary Rieby an emancipated convict. Many who trained at Len Evans Wines went on to help establish the modern Australian Wine Industry and it is fondly remembered by wine loving members of the Sydney Business District as a favourite luncheon spot.
