The Wicks family has appointed Adam Carnaby as Chief Winemaker at Wicks Estate, situated in the cool climate wine region of the Adelaide Hills.
“Tim and I are thrilled to announce Adam as Chief Winemaker at Wicks Estate and are excited for what the future holds,” Wicks Estate Director Simon Wicks said.
“His experience across all our key varietals and his knowledge of vineyard, terroir and winemaking along with an enormous passion for wine will be a great asset for the Wicks brand.”
Adam has gained winemaking experience across Australia, beginning in the Yarra Valley, where he worked with pinot noir expert Tom Carson, then in Margaret River, with Xanadu Wines. Most recently, Adam was chief winemaker at Seppelt Wines, in Great Western.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining the team at Wicks and look forward to working with premium Adelaide Hills fruit from the estate vineyard. It’s paramount that wine be regionally expressive and have a sense of place” Adam says.
