WINEMAKER: Briony Hoare
Briony has been involved in the industry since the early 1990’s, working around Australia with brands such as Lindemans, Rouge Homme, Wynns, Penfolds, Seppelts, Tulloch’s, Seaview and Rosemount.
Time in Mildura helped develop a passion for Italian varietals, and this followed a vintage in Piedmont, Northern Italy, where she worked with Barbera, Nebbiolo, Gavi, and Moscato.
In 2003 Briony was named Wine Society Young Winemaker of the Year, for her work with Rosemount Shiraz and GSM (Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre).
In 2005 Briony stepped out on her own to combine a family, a wine consultancy as well as begin the concept of Beach Road Wines.
VITICULTURIST: Tony Hoare
Tony has also been involved in the industry since the early 1990’s. With extensive experience in Mildura, the Hunter Valley and McLaren Vale, Tony has developed a knowledge, passion and understanding for vines and wines alike.
After 5 years as Viticulturist for Wirra Wirra Vineyards, Tony joined forces with Bri to develop a consultancy for vineyards and wine brands from Kangaroo Island to Coonawarra. Tony is responsible for sourcing the best fruit, helping make the wines and will be the sales driver behind the Brand.
> Bri and Tony’s passion for wine is about flavour, and texture. We don’t like getting too fussy about wine, and fancy words don’t impress. Wine should just taste good, and help celebrate a moment. That said we are still committed to making the best and most interesting wines we can for Beach Road Wines. We love developing new varieties, and will continue to offer interesting small parcels as we make them. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
