Nigel Dolan’s legendary status is borne from holding Senior Winemaking positions at Chateau Tanunda, Seppeltsfield and Saltram. He has been awarded the Jimmy Watson Trophy twice - in 1992 and 2003 and there is probably not a Red wine trophy in major Australian shows that Nigel’s wines have not won at least once, including the Brisbane Wine Show’s Stodart Trophy three times!
