Sassafras Wines is a Canberra-based producer of ancestral method sparkling wine, as well as some table wines from Italian grape varieties. Paul Starr is the person behind the label. The wines are now made at Nick O’Leary’s shed in the Hall area of the Canberra wine region.
The name ‘Sassafras’ comes from Australia’s two native species of Sassafras tree: Doryphora sassafras and the Southern Sassafras (Atherosperma moschatum). Purchasing a Sassafras wine helps us donate to Bush Heritage Australia for their practical work in habitat conservation.
