Vignerons and Winemaker – Tony Brooks and Wendy Allan, Peter Leske
A love of the land and a solid connection to Pindarie led Tony Brooks to join his grandfather in 1990 to share the farm property. Over successive years, Tony's vision and his wife Wendy's passion for viticulture have been pivotal to Pindarie's resurgence as a 700-acre working property with a blend of sheep and vines. Tony and Wendy were among the early pioneers of Tempranillo in the Barossa Valley, a variety ideally suited to the stony dirt of the Western Ridge. The original 10-hectare planting of Shiraz in 1998 has since grown to include more types of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Montepulciano.
