Bimbadgen Wines represent creativity, uniqueness and the desire to look beyond tradition. These values, shared by the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, form the basis of a unique partnership, from which these specially labelled wines are born.

Fiano originates from Sicily though in modern times has emerged as the pre-eminant white grape variety in Campania. Our Hunter Valley version displays aromas of hazelnuts, cardamom spice and honey. This follows onto the palate, balanced with a crisp acid structure and wonderful texture, which is ideally suited to salty meats and seafood. Be daring, try it and enjoy!

Linda Marrinon has worked across painting, watercolour and sculpture since the mid-1980s. Her work is characterised by its inventive engagement with the past combined with a mixture of postmodernist irony,feminist critique and understated humour.
