Semillon Haze

Graeme Arnold


Austinn Baeder arrived in the Port of Geelong in 1845 with his two adult sons to start a new life. The Swiss winemaker planned to open a new vineyard and winery on the banks of the Barwon River. The retired soldier came looking for new opportunities, but to also leave a troubled past behind.

Mitchell Baeder, a modern-day descendant of Austinn continues the winemaking tradition on the original property Austinn and his sons established, Cressier. Mitchell is a bit old-fashioned and slow to embrace modern techniques. His son, Adam is a wayward adolescent, and causes Mitchell and his wife Fiona much grief. Adam’s on and off relationship with Jenny, a girl from the adjacent winery, has the potential to bring the family together.

A series of unfortunate events unwittingly brings the modern day Baeder family far closer to their ancestors than they could ever imagine. It could even expose a dreadful family secret that lay dormant for over 100 years: the true reason behind Austinn’s emigration.
