Ad Hoc is an assembly of varietal wines for any occasion, each wine sourced from its best-suited region in Western Australia.

From Margaret River, to Pemberton, to the regions of the Great Southern, we’ve grown up and worked amongst the vines. Our knowledge of these regions and relationships with other grape growers enables us to find the best vineyards for each grape variety, and this is what we show with through Ad Hoc.

About Larry Cherubino

I’m a first generation Australian. At school, whilst other kids had meat pies and vegemite sandwiches for lunch, I had roasted pepper sandwiches and homemade sausages. With my uncles and aunts pressing grapes on their farms and in their backyards, and my own family at one time having a small vineyard, it’s clear where my interest in wine originated. We met in 1994, the same year I graduated from horticulture. As I was starting my work in wine, we were also embarking on our life journey.

During my career, I’ve been head winemaker at Houghton and a traveling consultant. I designed vineyards and wineries, and work took me overseas to New Zealand, USA, France, Italy and South Africa.

Edwina and I purchased our first parcel of land in Frankland River in 2004 with dreams of planting our own vineyard. It was a small parcel that had originally been part of a large, historic land holding called Riversdale. A few years later we had the opportunity to buy the neighbouring vineyard, and acres of prime river and vineyard country. We didn’t hesitate as we knew its potential.

Cherubino Wines began in our spare room in 2005 with the release of one wine. A lot has happened since. The range has grown, and along the way, we’ve been honoured to be listed as Winery Of The Year by respected wine critics such as James Halliday and Matt Skinner.
