DOWIE DOOLE: Strange name... Serious wine.
At DOWIE DOOLE we believe that wine is a form of art; a companion at your favourite event, the perfect match to that meal, the well-received gift and the drink that tantalises all kinds of taste buds. For more than 20 years our boutique winery has been committed to producing rich, premium wine for everyone that is well loved and remembered. This commitment was validated in 2015 when DOWIE DOOLE was awarded one of James Halliday’s 2016 Australian Wine Companion Ten Dark Horses, as well as being recognised as a Halliday 5 star winery.
DOWIE DOOLE was founded in 1995 by Drew Dowie and Norm Doole. They have been connected to McLaren Vale community for many years and are renowned grape growers in the region managing a truly unique vineyard. In 2011 multiple Bushing King and McLaren Vale identity Brian Light passed the DOWIE DOOLE winemaking baton to his long-time protégé Chris Thomas. Together with founder Norm Doole and a small group of like-minded wine lovers, Chris proudly continues the tradition of making outstanding wines from the DOWIE and DOOLE estate vineyards. Vineyard management is led by champions of sustainable viticulture practices Dave Gartlemann and Drew Dowie. DOWIE DOOLE distributes directly within Australia and exports to the major markets, being able to be found in premium locations throughout the globe.
