Andrew & Jenny's Story
Andrew and Jenny Sinclair are explorers at heart, and, just as well.
When they seized the day back in 2014 and made a seachange from the Sydney burbs to the wild coastline of south eastern Tasmania they could’ve been excused for having a little ‘what-have-we-just-done!’ moment.
Their quest for a family life full of discovery and adventure was instantly magnified when they took over the pristine Cape Bernier vineyard - complete with stunning views out to the spectacular Marion Bay and the Tasman Sea beyond.
Growing and making wine in Tasmania is incredibly tough, unpredictable, hard work. The prevailing weather is so wildly variable that it’s a constant battle to maintain crop yields and then there’s trying to keep the high costs of being a small artisan producer under some sort of manageable control. It’s not for the faint hearted.
And critically, there’s also the harsh reality check that comes with being a tiny boutique winegrower constantly striving to get their labour of love to market, to winelovers who will, well… love it!
That’s where Angels like you can, and do, literally change lives. When Samples of Cape Bernier 3 Flying Pigs Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that landed on my desk at Naked HQ my response was immediate - “Angels will love these!”
