We are pleased to announce a fantastic ‘Meet the Winemaker’ online tasting session with our friends at West London Wine School. The tasting will be hosted on Click Meeting by West London Wine School Owner and Chief Taster, Jimmy Smith alongside Owner Owen Inglis and Winemaker Darryl Catlin from award winning Sidewood Estates in Adelaide Hills on Saturday 2nd May from 12:30pm – 1:30pm.
Sidewood Estate is a privately owned vineyard, nestled in the Adelaide Hills, the heart of Australian cool climate wine. Owen and Cassandra Inglis purchased the estate in 2004 with a desire to create stylish and elegant wines, focussed on quality and underpinned by impeccable winemaking. All of the grapes are carefully handpicked from selected rows across the 300 acre estate before being handed over to internationally acclaimed winemaker, Darryl Catlin.
Darryl grew up in the Barossa Valley and started his passion for the wine industry as a youngster. He completed his Bachelor of Wine Science in 2004. Whilst studying his time was spent working for Adelaide’s East End Cellars consolidating his knowledge before managing the independent wine store. Since joining Sidewood Estates, Darryl’s hard work has earned much recognition including ‘Best Red Wine in Australia’ from 2014 International Wine Challenge.
Sidewood Estates has gone from strength to strength is Adelaide Hills’ largest sustainable winery. The wines have collected many international awards and accolades with the 2015 Mappinga Shiraz getting an incredible 98 points from Decanter!
