At this year’s Declaration of Vintage celebration in South Australia, winemaker Andrew Quin was awarded the prestigious Barons of Barossa 2017 Winemaker of the Year.
Quin has taken a slightly unusual road to winemaking, transitioning from his original field of study – horticulture. For Andrew, winemaking provided an unparalleled opportunity to combine scientific knowledge with his artistic air, in the pursuit of creating something that others could enjoy… great wine!
Andrew joins an elite class of Barossa winemakers and further cements himself as one of the best and consistent young talents in the country. “I think it’s a pretty tough job for these guys picking a winemaker every year, this community is bursting with great winemakers,” he stated. “I’m obviously incredibly honoured to be the person selected for this great award in 2017”.
