Standing behind the original Beresford winery, Beacon Hill has been guiding local pilots for many years. Likewise you can depend on Beacon Hill – consistently balanced, fresh, aromatic wines with true varietal expression sourced from renowned regions within South Australia.
Growing up in the agricultural town of Renmark, South Australia, as a teenager Chris had penchant for pate and brie among other interesting and gourmet textures and flavours, this combined with a fondness for Biology and Chemistry, and some healthy persuasion from his parents led to him completing his wine science degree at Roseworthy College, South Australia.
After graduating Chris spent time in the Hunter and Yarra Valleys, working vintages, before settling as a technical assistant at Katnook Estate in the Coonawarra, where eventually he became assistant wine maker. This then took Chris on a wine maker’s journey to Mildura, McLaren Vale, Clare and back to McLaren Vale as a senior wine maker. After 25 vintages Chris has worked alongside some notable industry legends and has an impressive portfolio of accolades to his name.
Chris loves the weird and wonderful wine varieties that have unusual techniques or come from undiscovered regions but most enjoys discovering a little block of McLaren Vale Shiraz and seeing what he can do with it, watching the wine evolve in the barrel and finally come to fruitation at blending and bottling.
