back on our own in 2014, vinteloper took a short term lease on an abandoned former fruit stall in the adelaide central market.
surrounded by the amazing fresh produce and buzz of the market, one of adelaide's centres of tourism, heads were turned and eyebrows raised. 

WE MADE 2052 BOTTLES OF VINTELOPER URBAN WINERY RED # 2 [2014]
