Wendouree is one of the historic properties of the Clare. Vines were first planted here in 1892, and they are still going strong. The vineyards are stunning, with some wonderful old vines. Tony Brady brought the property in 1974, but had no experience of winemaking. Fortunately, there was a chap who had started working there in 1917 who stayed on for seven years, showing Tony the ropes. In the meantime, Tony’s wife did a wine science degree at Wagga. He admits that he got into winemaking by chance.
