There can be no doubt about Mike’s talent as a winemaker – and his experience. Reviews and awards cited on this website tell part of the story.

We hope over time more of that story will be told…

MPW still has a good stock made by Mike from 2023 and earlier vintages – available by ordering on-line – or even better, by joining the PRESS CLUB.

As Mike said himself a while back: “In making wines you MUST begin at the vineyard…..and referring to Kenton Valley Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills  ….. “There are no negatives in this vineyard at all”.

This year’s 2024 wines come from this same vineyard, made by Mike’s talented successor, mentored by him, Josh Waechter, Winemaker and Manager at Oliver & Press in McLaren Vale [link]. Josh will let us know when they are ready for sale, and we’ll ensure that our loyal online customers will be the first to know!
