Dum Vivo Cano
Mr. Riggs Wine Co. was founded in 2001. It’s winemaker Ben Riggs oversees the continual evolution of his premium wines, utilising distinctive regional parcels of fruit from the McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra. “The aim of all Mr. Riggs wines is to express the essence of the vineyard and varieties, in a style that I enjoy drinking.
The latin phrase Dum Vivo Cano taken from our Riggs family crest, translates to While alive, Celebrate. This has been my life-long philosophy and continues to be a benchmark to which I live by.” Relish the big events, but be sure to enjoy the steps along the way.
