Established in 1858 by English immigrant Edward Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s Wines is one of Australia’s pre-eminent family owned wine companies with vineyards extending from their historic home in the Hunter Valley to their Heathcote vineyards in Victoria.
Headed up by fourth generation family member Bruce Tyrrell, Tyrrell’s is home to some of Australia’s most awarded wines including the iconic Vat 1 Semillon. Since 1971, Tyrrell’s has been awarded over 5,000 trophies and medals. One of Australia’s most talented winemakers, Andrew Spinaze, boasts over 40 vintages with Tyrrell’s Wines, most of them as chief winemaker. During Andrew’s time with Tyrrell’s, the company has successfully made the transition from small family winery to a major Australia wine company.
Tyrrell’s Winemaker’s Selection is one of the oldest and most awarded wine styles made in Australia and includes the Vat 1 Semillon, Vat 47 Chardonnay and Vat 9 Shiraz. These wines hold true to both the Hunter style and the Tyrrell’s philosophy; timeless wines that are able to transcend all the new trends and fads over many decades.
