Minimum wines are a project of love: a combination of mindful winemaking with a respect for the land it comes from. Together we have converted our vineyard to organic practices and are committed to a vision that embraces joy in winemaking, wine and life.
We believe that wine is the embodiment of the deep connection between humans and nature—a coming together of the spontaneous processes and intellect of nature with the inspired movements of human hands. We honour the special moments that arise when humans drink wine.
Think, feel, wonder.
BUILDING A BRAVE NEW WORLD:
By Minimum's Resident Astrologer, Emma Vidgen
The Mood for 2021
The overall vibe for 2021 is quite different. In fairness, different isn’t always better but in the context of 2020, different does feel kind of like an improvement.
From 21 December, 2020 there’ll be a huge change to the overall mood. Think of this like the background track to our lives changing key. It’s a continuation of the same song, but the song takes a new, direction – think: when Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” switches gears from the ballad section to the operatic part.

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR YOU IN 2021
On a personal level, 2021 is an invitation to consider the foundations you want to establish for the future. Chances are 2020 gave you a major reality check, forcing you to confront parts of your life that weren’t working. You may have reached the end of your tether with where you live, with your job or in a relationship.
This year is about integrating those tough lessons and restructuring the foundations – where you live, where you work and how much you work – so they are more in alignment with what you stand for. Thinking about sustainability, not just in terms of your connection to the natural world, but also, in terms of your heath, your work/life balance and your resources will be important. Like a company that’s long-overdue for a brand overhaul, this is the year to figure out your “why”.
WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THE WORLD IN 2021
In a broader, more societal context the mood will focus squarely on rebuilding structures, institutions and systems for the future. With Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius there’s the opportunity to create a new framework based on innovation and altruistic ideals. But building something better won’t come without resistance. With Uranus in Taurus squaring Saturn in Aquarius civil unrest, volatility, disruption and economic instability will likely be key signatures in 2021.
Innovation, data-sharing and privacy issues will dominate headlines as we grapple as a society to rebuild on the destruction of 2020 and heal both physically and culturally. With the north node in Gemini the need to consider different perspectives and truly listen to each other is crucial. But with the south node in Sagittarius, division, dogma and pick-a-side culture means compromising will be easier said than done, especially during eclipse season (26 May – 10 June; 19 November – 4 December).
