The Curly Vine


Enterprising Australian vigneron Joanne Woodhouse has found a new use for the wine lees (grape skins and seeds) from the family vineyard in Victoria – she’s using them as the base for a range of handcrafted soaps, body care products and candles. The Chardonnay soap is said to be good for make-up removal, the Cabernet Sauvignon is for exfoliation, and the Shiraz for shaving. Her company, The Curly Vine, is now supplying outlets in Asia, Europe and the South Pacific. Sandra Westbrooke reports.
