The Venus Rising Syrah is from the Derwent Valley. She's dynamic and vibrant, spicy and peppery with bountiful courage.
In 1806, Charlotte Badger became Australia's first female pirate.
While being transported to Van Diemen’s Land aboard the convict ship Venus, the captain stepped ashore at Port Dalrymple (George Town, Tasmania.) It was then that Charlotte had her Quiet Mutiny and convinced the crew to mutiny and sail to New Zealand.
Her final fate was never known...
Charlotte Badger’s bold actions inspired our own embarquement of quiet mutiny in this fabled land.
