About Tom…
Tom comes from 10 generations of winemakers and so wine is truly in his blood. Growing up in Victoria, Tom honed his craft alongside his father Dominique, a winemaker from France. His first vintage outside of Australia was spent in Bordeaux. Tom later perfected his winemaking skills in Champagne & California’s Napa Valley

With one foot rooted firmly in tradition and the other trailblazing ahead to the future, Tom embodies the best in New and Old World winemaking philosophies.
