It is with great sadness that I let you all know that Phil passed away peacefully on Monday 6th August after a brief illness.

Our tree-change was Phil’s hare-brained scheme – it combined perfectly his love of wine, the outdoors and living in a small community. He built this vineyard from scratch over fourteen years. Throughout his illness he was committed to keeping the business running at times even directing us from his hospital bed!

To honour Phil’s memory and dedication to producing great wine, the kids and I will continue the business just as Phil would have done. We will keep making the wine, we will keep opening the cellar door on weekends and public holidays. We will retire the name ‘William’ on our Estate Shiraz from the 2018 vintage and replace it with ‘Philip’.

Thank you to everyone for your messages of support during this difficult time and look forward to welcoming you to the cellar door soon.
