Creating The Perfect Combo: Organic Wine & Jewellery
Recently, Medley hosted over 80 guests at Studio Gallery Group, Brisbane's newest art gallery to celebrate our Autumn '23 campaign: Love Knows No Bounds. The crowd was immersed in art, sound and lighting, whilst listening to an exclusive performance by Australian/French musician and songwriter Elodie Gervaise who wrote and produced an original song "Amour Libre" for our Autumn '23 campaign. The night was not complete without our favourite Atmata Wines, and we thought hey, what goes better with delicious organic wine? A jewellery and wine pairing. So here is our take on our favourite wine pairings, jewellery edition of course!
About Atmata Wines
We spoke to 100% Australian Certified Organic Wine, Atmata and got an insight into their brand story and must try wine!
What’s the Atmata Story?
Atmata, meaning ‘essence, from nature’, is 100% Australian Certified Organic from vine to bottle. The Atmata story began with the passion to source grapes from the highest quality organic vineyards across Australia with a strong focus on wines cultivated in harmony with nature. Grapes for Atmata’s current vintage were sourced from a 143-hectare organic vineyard in the Glenrowan region. This style of farming is particularly suited to Glenrowan’s warm and dry climate which lends itself to a minimalist approach and the cooling alpine breezes and free-draining soils, making it an ideal place for organic wine grape growing. The range includes a vibrant Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz – all vegan-friendly, made with minimal intervention, and perfect for a picnic with friends and family.
Why did you choose to make organic/vegan wines?
Noticing the current trends of increased ethical awareness and focus on health and well-being trends in the beverage industry, wine drinkers are seeking products that are both better for their bodies and the environment. Atmata delivers on the growing consumer need for making more conscious choices when selecting wine, and is easily identified with the Australian Organic Certified logo.
Which wine do you think is a must try?
Our must-try wine is the stylish and delicious Atmata Rosé which is bursting with vibrant flavours of watermelon and grapefruit – finishing with fresh acidity.
Favourite wine pairing?
Our favourite wine pairing is definitely the Atmata Rosé served chilled and perfectly matched with seafood linguine, summer salads, and charcuterie. Our Rosé is available in your local independent liquor store.

Benefits of Organic Wine
Organic wine is made from grapes grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Some benefits include healthier for the consumer, better for the environment, higher quality, supports sustainable agriculture and no sulphites just to name a few! So when we stumbled across Atmata wines we knew we had the perfect wine to pair with our event, as Medley is also a brand with purpose, ethical, modern and responsibly sourced.
Brief History On Organic Wine
According to this deep dive, the history of organic wine dates back to the early 20th century when Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher, introduced the concept of biodynamic farming. Biodynamic farming involves using natural and organic methods to grow crops and raising livestock, while also considering the cosmic and spiritual influences on agriculture.
In 1991, the European Union established a legal framework for organic farming, which included standards for organic wine production. This allowed organic wines to be labelled as such and gave consumers a clear indication of the farming practices used to produce the wine. Today, organic wine production is a growing industry, with many wineries around the world embracing organic farming practices. The organic wine market has also expanded to include biodynamic and natural wines, which are made with even fewer additives and interventions.
