High Quality Small Batch McLaren Vale Winemakers

Wistmosa

Stephen & Sadie Gomer

At Wistmosa Wines we are all about family, good food, great friends and loving the lifestyle we are lucky enough to live, all while enjoying making great wine.

Stephen:
I am passionate about wine and grape growing - having grown up with a father who enjoyed the finer things in life, such as the joys of wine appreciation (commonly known as tasting) and home brewing. Since leaving school and having completed a Science qualification, I have also enjoyed the ‘hobby’ of wine appreciation and wine-making.

Sadie & I have owned two separate vineyards in the McLaren Vale Wine Growing Region since 2006.

I have been involved in the making of wine, on and off since 1996, where I worked in wineries such as Mountadam and Hillstowe. Since the early 2000's, my involvement has been from a distance, as my work took me interstate until 2010.

Sadie:
I grew up on an 80 acre property in Eden Valley, which contained 25 acres of lovely old Shiraz and newly planted Riesling. Unfortunately I saw the effects of the early ‘80’s ‘Vine-pull Scheme’ where my parents were paid by the Government to pull out some of those wonderful old Shiraz vines. I also watched as Mum & Dad suffered the joys of having many ‘bad’ years in a row; watched Mum pruning in the middle of 'lovely' Eden Valley winters; spent my spare time ‘helping’ in the vineyard with picking, fertilising and other necessary chores – andwondered why anyone would choose this as a way of life! Now here I am, married to someone passionate about the industry, and owning our own vineyard in McLaren Vale since 2006 – which I wouldn’t swap for the world!
