Simon's Story

Simon Sorby Adams is one of the most influential and acclaimed winemakers in Australia.

He was instrumental, as Senior Winemaker of Yalumba for twenty years, in establishing the truly iconic international reputation for its masthead premium wines - The Octavius, The Reserve, The Signature and The Menzies. That is massive!

He has amassed more than 65 trophies and 300 gold medals over thirty years, including twice winning Best Vintage Red at the International Wine and Spirit Challenge in London, the Stoddard Trophy at Brisbane and the ‘Triple Crown’ at the National Wine Show in Canberra, including Best Wine of Show, and sooo many more!

Sorby’s exclusive-to-Naked range of Barossa and Eden wine labels feature an ancient spherical astrolabe on the front in honour of his ancestor John Couch Adams who in the early 1800’s was credited with discovering Neptune.

Throughout his award-winning career, Sorby’s philosophy of seeking out the finest grapes from the best vineyards in the Barossa and high Eden to create exceptional wines, has been at the very heart of everything he does.
