The Bird in Hand winery is situated in Southern Australia's Adelaide Hills. The seaside influence of the Gulf of St. Vincent, the cloud-trapping rise of the Mount Lofty Ranges and plenty of Australian sun all combine to create the perfect conditions for cool-climate winemaking.

Owner Andrew Nugent happened upon the site for the winery in the late 1990s. A nineteenth century gold mine turned dairy farm, the site was waiting for its next owner. And since its inception in 1997, it remains very much a family business, with the Nugent family still living on the estate.

Kym Milne oversees the winemaking at Bird in Hand. He was the second ever Australian Master of Wine, and spent almost a decade as Senior winemaker at Kiwi legends Villa Maria. He has been working with Bird in Hand since 2003. He was named Australian winemaker of the year not once but twice!

Join us in the Turl Street Cellar as representative from the winery Nicole Roberts takes us through a selection of bottles from this excellent producer. We’ll taste six wines, ranging from the highly acclaimed Sparkling Pinot Noir Rosé, to the beautifully Burgundian Chardonnay, and through to a true Aussie classic, the Nest Egg Shiraz.
