There have been a number of changes in the name of the vineyard and in the ownership structure, none of the prior details of any relevance. Today Brash Higgins is owned by Chris and Anne Carter, Brian and Ann McGuiness and Rik and Jenny Nitert. The estate-grown grapes are in large part retained for the brand. Export to the US and Canada.
Trying to add something new to the winemaking dialogue, Brash Higgins makes amphora wines, field blends, co-ferments and sources biodynamic fruit. Their own 17 acre Omensetter Vineyard in McLaren Vale is farmed organically and grows Shiraz, Nero d'Avola, which is made in locally potted amphora, and Cabernet Sauvignon, all made in a micro-artisanal Winery located on the estate. Brash Higgins is the life long dream of former NYC sommelier Brad Hickey and South Aussie partner and vigneron Nicole Thorpe to grow premium grapes and make world class, minimal intervention wines.
