Not a Bad Drop

SUPER LOCO CUSTOMS HOUSE

Handmade in small batches, here’s a wine series that makes use of under-appreciated grape types from the Riverland that grows naturally well in the South Australian climate. With loco attitude from downunder, Delinquente Wine debuted last year with Vermentino (Screaming Betty) and it goes beautifully with our Mexican dishes. We’re happy to have these ‘ugly as sin’ Vermentinos available in Super Loco Customs House.

Specialising in lesser known southern Italian varieties, Con-Greg Grigoriou’s Delinquente Wine Co. mixes accessibility with generations of wine knowledge. 

What did we think of them when we were introduced?

Screaming Betty- Vermentinos by Delinquente Wine Co.

It was love at first sight and passion at first sip!

Con-Greg Grigoriou is the son of wine professional Chris Grigoriou, who manages high-volume wineries in the Riverland and Barossa Valley for more than 35 years. Having spent most of his childhood playing between vats and barrels, Con-Greg wanted to “get as far aways from the wine industry as possible” and so, moved to Melbourne and worked in advertising.
Sometime later, Con-Greg found himself back in Adelaide where he was once again drawn into the world of fermented grapes. “The idea had been bubbling along for awhile. I love these varieties and I think I saw an opportunity to make an awesome wine from the place I grew up, but put my own slant on it as well.” says Con-Greg! Tight and concise, small batches and special stuff year on year, collaborating with other winemakers and grape growers and keeping things fresh is Con-Greg’s moto. "The idea is to make really really, easy drinking - ‘smash able’ is the word we use - wines."
Another factor that draws attention to Delinquente is it’s aesthetics. Masterminded by Con-Greg together with a mutual friends Ankles, the bottle labels depict a suite of characters set against hand-drawn illustration. The Delinquentes designs were influenced by pop culture references and people Ankles saw on the streets. The labels are meant to be ugly, confronting and weird, but still sort of beautiful and cool, which it is!
