Andrew Margan, following in his late father's footsteps, entered the wine industry over 20 years ago, working as a Flying Winemaker in Europe, then for Tyrrell's. The growth of the Margan Family business over the following years has been the result of unremitting hard work and a keen understanding of the opportunities Australia's most visited wine region provides. They have won innumerable awards in the tourism sector, against competition in the Hunter Valley, across NSW, and Australia-wide. The next generation will be able to cover all bases when their parents retire. Eldest son Ollie is finishing a double degree in winemaking and viticultural science at the University of Adelaide; daughter Alessa is studying communications at UTS while working in wine and food PR, and younger son James is enrolled in economics at Sydney University. Andrew has continued to push the envelope in the range of wines being made, without losing focus on the varieties that have made the Hunter famous. He began the development with barbera in 1998, and since then has progressively planted mourvedre, albarino, tempranillo and graciano. Exports to the UK, Germany, Norway, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China.
