Thistledown was founded by Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke, two Masters of Wine intent on seeking out the best cooler climate, old-vine vineyards they could find in Australia. They settled on building the winery in the Adelaide Hills appellation, but source fruit from other regions as well, principally Barossa and McLaren Vale. With an emphasis on 125+ year-old Grenache vines, these two MWs, along with winemaker Peter Leske, are now producing some of the most profound, terroir-focused wines Down Under.
