DC — Australian Feature: ANGOVE, Organic with Winemaker, Tony Ingle

August 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Meet Chief Winemaker of Angove, Tony Ingle. Tony carefully crafts each of Angove’s McLaren Vale Organic wines. The winery team is passionate about Organic winemaking and it is the overlying principle’s of care, attention and detail that make Angove Organic wines so full of flavour.

The organic winemaking story begins in Angove’s South Australian vineyards, where the naturally healthy soils and vines yield more naturally delicious grapes and wines. So they trust nature, helping the process along by hand and without chemicals, knowing that if they look after the land, the land will look after their vines. Angove’s organic wines are fully certified by Australian Certified Organic.

Tony Ingle’s arrival at Angove Family Winemakers in 2003 has been pivotal in the rebirth of the venerable company as a quality wine producer. He has greatly improved its wines and driven the re-orientation away from bulk wine to smaller-lot high-quality table wines. He’s inspired the organic push, the creation of a boutique winery within the big Renmark winery, and the sourcing of grapes from other regions. He was deeply involved in the company’s move to expand into McLaren Vale and buy the Warboys Vineyard in 2008, which has resulted in some outstanding additions to the portfolio.

This vineyard was immediately converted to biodynamic management, following the trend of the company towards sustainable viticulture, which began with the ongoing conversion of its large Riverland vineyard Nanya to organic status. Nanya currently has 77 hectares of vines under organic management and another 64 in conversion, providing fruit for its range of organic wines.

Wine Club Memberhip Tokens Accepted.
