Ashley Horner
  • Born and bred in the Upper Hunter Valley, Ash worked in local vineyards helping to establish the Family Vineyard.
  • Ashley is one of the most passionate people we have ever met. When asked what he loved most about his job, his answer was "Everything! I love the action during vintage and progression of grapes made into a bottle to enjoy. I love the diversity and the abstract thinking you can put into creating a wine product. I also love the diversity of the people that work in the industry and how winemaking makes me feel complete in my life".
  • Whats the difference between Ash and the rest? Well, Ashley is an organic winemaker! His grapes are from organic vineyards and made using organic practices.

Ashley's story

 

Ashley was born and bred in the Upper Hunter Valley and started a traineeship with Rosemount Estate at the age of 18 and completed 4 years until leaving to experience other wine regions. Ash completed vintages at Penfolds SA, Kamberra Estate ACT, Brands of Coonawarra SA, Saint Clair NZ, before returning to his home.

Ash experienced a number of different trades along the way but never felt like it was right and kept on returning back to the winery where it felt like home. Eventually, he realised he had a passion and skill for winemaking and decided to follow the wine gods. His father also established vineyards and Ashley realised there was a great opportunity and lifestyle in front of him

Ash produced the first vineyards off the Family vineyard in 2010 & won a gold medal for it.

Ashley's ultimate goal for his family vineyard is to make and sell wine from the entire vineyard under the label - Horner wines. And thanks to our Angels he is able to do that today!

He does have a favourite varietal... Ash loves the diversity when making chardonnay. It is a variety that can handle a lot of different techniques and continues to challenge him. But overall he just loves making wine!
