2 up Winery
2 up is sourced from vineyards located in Southern Fleurieu and McLaren Vale. The vineyards of the Southern Fleurieu contribute color together with a signature blackberry and spice. The McLaren Vale vineyards give depth and texture together with the complex spice, dark plums and cherry always associated with this region. Together the two regions provide depth, complexity and a powerful mid-palate. Two-up is a popular, centuries old, Australian game of chance played in the back of pubs using two pennies and a paddle called a "kip." Bets get placed, coins get tossed, and everyone goes wild till the pennies land… either both heads—a "two-up," tails or odds—a "one-up." If you get a two-up, you double your money. Odds, you simply throw again. If you get two tails, you lose and it's the next thrower's turn.

The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
