Hugely talented winemaker from the Clare Valley

    • Adam Barton began as a winemaker largely as a result of tasting a glass of the 1965 Lindemans Hunter River Burgundy which he described as "magic". Based in the Clare Valley, Adam has the freedom to explore different variteals and keep pushing the boundaries of experimentation to the delight of Angels' taste buds everywhere.
    • Winemaking since 2001, the reason Adam's wines are so special is due to carefully selected vineyards, passionate grower partners & lots of care and attention to the smallest detail in the winery.
    • Adam's Rabbit & Spaghetti range of Red wines are consistently loved by Angels, garnering a mammoth 90% or more buy-again rating year in, year out!

Adam's story

 

Adam Barton has been winemaking since 2001 and largely started as a result of tasting a glass of the 1965 Lindemans Hunter River Burgundy which he describes as magic!

Adam completed a commerce degree straight from high school. His first job was as an assistant manager of the cellar door at Rothbury Estate in the Hunter Valley. This led to subsequent roles in wholesale, retail & marketing. However, his interest always led back to the winery and to the winemakers who were very generous with their time and helped fuel Adam's interest in winemaking and production. He tested his way with several vintages as a cellar hand before finally studying to be a winemaker!

When asked what it was about his job he loved, Adam replied with 'The diversity of the work... driving tractors in the vineyard, in the winery, laboratory work, tasting, sales.... it's perfect for someone with the attention span of an ant."

We are lucky to have Adam join the Naked Wines family and the secret to his wines he puts down to carefully selected vineyards, passionate grower partners and care and attention to detail in the winery.

Adam was recently named as one of James Halliday's top 10 new producers & from the cheeky tasting we had of his new riesling, we'd have to agree!

Always a sucker for a darker Malbec or Syrah, but at the same time willing to hit the other end of the spectrum when the mood and temperature is right. Have a suggestion for me? Let me know, open minds lead to open doors.
