The definitive guide to Australian Wines
DOWIE DOOLE was founded in 1995 by Drew Dowie and Norm Doole. They had been connected to the McLaren Vale community for many years as grapegrowers in the region. Vineyard management is now led by champions of sustainable viticulture practices Dave Gartelmann and Drew Dowie. In May '16, with winemaker and managing director Chris Thomas leading a group of like-minded investors, DOWIE DOOLE acquired 35ha of vines of the 53ha Conte Tatachilla Vineyard, book-ended by 50 year-old bushvine grenache and recently grafted (in '12) vermentino, aglianico and lagrein. Exports to all major markets.
