Winemaker

Given my family background, it was inevitable that I would work in wine. My early inspiration came from my  father, Wayne Thomas who had a distinguished career making wine where I was raised in McLaren Vale.

During my formative winemaking years, despite being groomed for a possible winemaking career in South Australia, I developed a deep passion for finesse, and the more subtle and savoury structured wines of the Hunter Valley .

After graduating with a degree in Oenology at Roseworthy Agricultural College, I began my winemaking journey at Tyrrell’s Vineyards. During 13 years guidance under the legendary Murray Tyrrell at Tyrrells Wines, I gained a great respect for, and understanding of the two signature varieties of the Hunter Valley – semillon and shiraz.

My thirst for more knowledge and winemaking experience was quenched with vintages in Sonoma, Tuscany, Piedmont and Provence; but the desire to make world class wines under my own label could no longer be denied, it was time to go out on my own.

Vineyard

The Vineyards

"Whilst I have always applied a no compromise, attention to detail approach to my winemaking, I truly believe that 90% of the quality lies in the vineyard. The key to great wine is ‘keeping it simple’  to preserve that potential quality from the vine through to the bottle"- Andrew Thomas
