Andrew McPherson grew up in the 1950s and 60s in rural Victoria and saw the evolution of the wine industry. His father had worked in vineyards in New South Wales and as a lad Andrew had various jobs at wineries, including working at Tahbilk, the oldest winery in Victoria, when he was 13 years old. He enjoyed his childhood jobs so much that he decided to make a career doing the same thing. Andrew saw the style of wine go from simple with high alcohols to box wine to fine wine, and in his own way he has helped pioneer fine winemaking in Victoria.
Andrew was inspired by the wines of the Rhone Valley in France, which have more balance and complexity, and decided to purchase land in the Nagambie Lakes area of Victoria. The winery was first established in 1968 which makes it one of the early players in the area. Nagambie Lakes is north of Melbourne, and a few hours by car. It is a fairly remote region and does not have the glamor of the South Australia regions, but produces consistently good wines, and some of the most characterful wines in all of Australia. Andrew is now a grandfather, with two of his three kids pursuing careers in the wine industry.
