When Harald and Dodie Ziemer arrived as newlyweds in Adelaide in 1956, they quickly fell in love with Australian wines. After raising four children, they jumped at the opportunity to mix business with pleasure by investing in a boutique Australian wine gift business in the 80s.
For over 25 years Dad delighted in shipping fine Australian wines to Europe and the UK for a growing number of satisfied customers. He operated the business from his study via email, fax and snail mail until he died in 2013 aged 83 years.
Now the next generation of Ziemers – Katrine, Anita, Stefan and Markus, are working together to continue and expand Dad’s business. Beyond a collective love of Australian wines, between us we have capabilities in database management, IT, law, grape growing, education, business practice, event management, consulting and marketing.
The Water Through Grapes name
One of Dad’s favourite comments when offered a glass of water was,
“I only drink my water filtered through grapes”.
As a tribute to Dad we have renamed the business
Water Through Grapes and are proudly continuing to deliver
quality Australian wines throughout Europe and the UK.
