Impoverished nobility of indistinct european origins, 'The Duke' Carvell traded his way around the world riding on name and confidence alone. His earthy travels take us around the Mediterranean, his presence traced through various accounts of the time and now celebrated at No. 6 in the foods and wines of the regions.
Carvell’s journeys ultimately found him settled in Australia, where some unwelcomed notoriety earned late in life saw him live out his final days in God's Own. No more fitting place could we think of to celebrate a life rich in such achievements than Swan Lane, a back alley off Cuba...
In the words of his varied forebears:
Sola virtus triumphat – triumph through virtue.
