The Guglielmino family, specifically father Domenic and sons Nick and Alain, founded Mino & Co in 1997. From the outset they realised that their surname could cause problems of pronunciation, so they simply took the last four letters for the name of their business. Mino & Co has created two brands: Signor Vino and A Growers Touch. Signor Vino covers wines made from Italian varieties sourced from the Adelaide Hills, Riverina and Riverland. The A Growers Touch brand covers traditional varieties, often with local growers who have been working with the family for over two decades. The wines are made at Hanwood Winery (established on what was once a drive-in cinema). Exports to the UK, China and NZ. -JAMES HALLIDAY
“Applying our craft at the intersection of old and new world, for over 20 years'
The Guglielmino family have been crafting niche wines in the village of Hanwood, since 1997.
Mino + Co wines honour both our Sicilian roots and our Australian soil. Old meets new – heritage meets innovation – passion meets possibilities – with our three award-winning labels: A Growers Touch, Signor Vino and Little William.
A GROWERS TOUCH
A Growers Touch focuses on the production of more traditional varietals, all grown locally out of the Riverina by farmers who have worked the land for decades. The label offers credit to the hard-working hands that have cared for the vines and nurtured their fruit, helping them to the pinnacle of their potential. A Growers Touch is a love letter to the grit and passion that every great wine demands.
Signor Vino is an articulation of the families heritage – Italian heart, Australian Soul. We source the region – through the Adelaide Hills in South Australia and Riverina in NSW – for the terroir that is best aligned to the grapes’ Italian origins. A true gentleman and a friend, Signor Vino speaks the language of wine. Bold, elegant and confident, whether standing tall on your table or sitting quietly by your side – he aims to leave a lasting impression.
Little William is the English translation of the families surname, Guglielmino. Their origins lie in the coastal village of Fiumefreddo, where the local fishing boats sway gently on the shores of the sparkling Mediterranean. This is where our family began their journey to Australia. Never afraid to go against the flow, the Guglielmino’s have built a winemaking tradition that is both proud of its roots, but always looking to the future.
