Pindarie is located at the gateway to the Barossa Valley, on Gomersal Road on the Western Ridge.

A family owned property, with Tony Brooks at the helm after taking over from his grandfather in 1990. Together with Wendy the transformation of Pindarie began.

What was once a run-down & over-cleared farm has become a sustainable and regenerated property with Tony and Wendy planting over 12,500 trees in the last 20 years.

Prior to returning to Pindarie, Tony had jackarooed on a number of Outback Stations around Australia, and studied at Roseworthy Agricultural College, South Australia in 1985.  When he graduated he worked overseas managing sheep feedlots in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Jordan. Tony has a strong connection to the land and a passion for renovating old buildings. He believes land must be looked after in a sustainable manner. In his spare time you will find Tony restoring the old buildings on Pindarie, planting trees… He is a man of action who doesn’t really have ‘spare time’.

Wendy was born in New Zealand into a large family on a sheep, cattle and deer farm deep in the South Island. She came to South Australia in 1985 to study Viticulture at Roseworthy Agricultural College where she met Tony. After graduating, Wendy then worked for the next 12 years with the Penfolds Wine Group, starting as a Grower Liaison officer and working her way up to Senior Viticulturist. During her working career, she travelled overseas to California, Israel, Italy, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain and Chile, to conduct study tours and assess vineyards for wine projects. In 2001 Wendy completed a Graduate Diploma in Wine Business.

Pindarie is a beautiful property and home to Tony, Wendy and their three children. Opening the Cellar door has allowed them to share what they love. Historic buildings, meticulously restored, wide open spaces, family friendly, sustainable and the very best grapes they can grow turned into wine.

Montepulciano originates from central Italy and it is very much a “modern Mediterranean” red style produced on our stony Western Ridge soils.

Settling into balance after three vintages, the “Full Monte” has arrived with the 2019 vintage.

Our vines have delivered fruit with deep crimson colour. Very much true to type but with an extra degree of depth due to increased vineyard maturity.

How do we describe it… fresh, bright, with medium to more full-bodied weight and a punch, crunchy tannins, berries & cherries… absolutely delicious!

Monte has the ability to retain acid with strong tannin, so it can cellar for 8-10 years.

Great drinking all year round, especially with a platter of Italian cured meats, strong salty cheeses or a big bowl of true Italian tomato based Pasta.
