Teusner wines was created by Kym Teusner and Michael Page in 2001.
After hearing a conversation between his girlfriends uncle and his brother about pulling up an old Grenache vineyard, planted by their grandparents, that they could no longer justify Kym took the radical decision to save the vineyard and buy the fruit. Kym approached his brother in law. Michael Page and between them they pulled together the funds to approach the Riebke brothers about their fruit. At first, they only had enough for a quarter of the fruit but the vineyard was saved.
