Meet the crew
McLaren Vale, South Australia
Purchased as a sea change by an ex-telecomms manager… because of the view! Trevor fell in love with it that day, enquired and, amazingly, the property was for sale. So, he sold up his old place, bought the new land and started planting. The property has now been in the Boerth family since 1984; the vineyard came into being 16 years later. Not one to steer far from the classics, they planted Bordeaux’s staples: Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
As with every grower we seem to come across the old vineyard dog, which seem to be always very well fed!
Trevor’s love of grape growing and winemaking must be genetic… his daughter, Sarah, is the partner of a premium winemaker in the McLaren Vale and his niece, Amanda Mader, is a viticulturist who’s married to Mark, who’s also a premium grower/winemaker.
The family also makes a small amount of wine for personal consumption along with close friends and family from their treasured Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc vines.
We might be a bit biased here but it is probably one of the most beautiful views from the vineyard in South Australia – quite possibly all of Australia, and the world! It’s amazing to look out over the Vale floor to the ocean, truly spectacular. We can see how and why he fell in love with it all those years ago.
