James' Review

This brings together two high-performance, highly experienced and highly credentialled business and life partners. Husband Toby Bekkers graduated with an honours degree in applied science in agriculture from the University of Adelaide, and over the ensuing years has had broad-ranging responsibilities as general manager of Paxton Wines in McLaren Vale, and as a leading exponent of organic and biodynamic viticulture. Wife Emmanuelle was born in Bandol in the south of France, and gained two university degrees, in biochemistry and oenology, before working for the Hardys in the south of France, which led her to Australia and a wide-ranging career, including Chalk Hill. Exports to the UK, Canada, France and China.

About this winery

A story of soil and soul.... BEKKERS is the label of respected viticulturist and consultant Toby Bekkers and his French-born wife and winemaker Emmanuelle. Few can claim a more extensive understanding of McLaren Vale. "Nothing we have seen overseas has diminished our conviction that McLaren Vale is capable of producing unique, world-class wines and we aim to be an emblem for the region.”
Sales primarily to a private mailing list, premier restaurants and selected fine wine retailers.
