Levrier, the name of the winery, is a French word that means greyhound. Jo chose this name to display her love of winemaking and greyhounds, who are both an essential part of her life for the last twenty years. She extends her support to the Greyhound Adoption Programme and has two greyhounds named Daphne and Georgie, who guard her office. All the grapes in her handcrafted wines grow in the Eden Valley and Barossa Valley vineyards. Proper gentle processing, along with aging in French oak barrels are common practice in her style of wine.
