Come and join the SA Division of EIANZ to hear about our plans for 2020. A presentation will be given by Chris Alderton from Green Edge Environmental and there will be wine tasting from Brothers at War Wines.
This will be a great opportunity to network with environmental professionals in South Australia. Drinks, nibbles and wine tasting will be provided.
Meet the Speakers:
Chris Alderton: Having grown up on a family vineyard in Sunraysia, Chris gained an appreciation for balancing production and fruit quality. During University holidays Chris worked vintages for some of the biggest wineries in Sunraysia, with roles including grower liaison, cellar hand and in the lab. His studies in Environmental Science have strengthened his understanding of soils and water management. Chris supplied the first tonne of fruit to Brothers At War and has continued to supply quality fruit ever since.
Brothers At War Wines
Brothers at War Wines began in 2013 with a tonne of grapes and two brothers’ vision to create world class wines with unique expression, using small parcels of exceptional fruit from some of the Barossa’s greatest characters.
While only in their 20s, Angus and Sam Wardlaw could be considered veterans of the winemaking game, having had access to the vast knowledge (and cellar) of their ‘old man’, David Wardlaw, a pioneer of Barossa winemaking. Then there’s older brother Andrew, who started his winemaking career in the 90s and before long was producing some of the first natural wines in the region.
Picking up childhood friend Matt Carter (who has long performed the role of referee between the brothers), and Eden Valley vigneron, Chris Alderton along the way, Brothers at War has grown into an award-winning wine label.
