The Lucky Country is a smaller project of Michael Twelftree from Two Hands. This was created to provide a reasonably priced “artisanal” wine to contrast the growing ocean of mass produced “critter wine” coming out of Australia.
The name is taken from the 1964 book, The Lucky Country, written by social critic Donald Horne and was originally written to be ironic, as an indictment of 1960’s Australia. Donald believed that the economic success of 60’s Australia was derived from luck rather than skill. But over the years, this phrase has taken on new meaning and is now proudly used by many to describe what is great about Australia.
The wines are quality wines packaged with iconic Australian photography, representing the lively spirit of Australia. They were created to deliver great value, stylish wines to drinkers at a reasonable price. People everywhere can now share and enjoy the experience of what makes Australia the Lucky Country.
