What should one do with pristine organic hand-harvested Margaret River Semillon? Take your best guess, and you wouldn't be close to what the inimitable Jo Perry at Dormilona has done.

She has co-fermented 10kgs of hemp seeds with a tonne of grapes, adding a nutty richness, and a grippiness more akin to an orange wine. Psychedelia-seekers hold your tye-dye, though, as the seeds – legal for human consumption only since 2017 – are more about tannin than THC. No finings, filtration, or additives. Did you knoe hemp seeds are super high in omegas and protein? So this wine could be considered healthy ;)
