Naked Winemaker

Ben Riggs

Mr McLaren Vale is now making exclusive wine, just for you!

    • Ben’s a McLaren Vale legend! Over his illustrious 47-vintage career, he’s won more trophies and medals than you can shake a stick at. His knowledge of the vineyards and grapes of the region is second to none.
    • He’s been taught the ropes by serious wine legends like Murray Tyrrel and Brian Croser. They took him under their wings and shared significant vino know-how that Ben puts to use to this day in making his magnificent wines. 
    • Once the Chief Winemaker at the iconic Wirra Wirra winery in McLaren Vale, Ben scratched the itch to break out and make his own wine. Today, he owns a Halliday 5-star winery and in June 2020 became our 57th Naked winemaker!
