Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1890, Amos William Howard discovered subterranean clover thriving naturally in a picturesque valley in the Adelaide Hills. Howard Vineyard’s stone barn Cellar Door and premium red vineyard are located in Nairne, on the site of this original farm. Subterranean clover continues to grow at this site, restoring Nitrogen and ensuring the health and quality of the soil in this spectacular vineyard. 30km away, our high altitude (470m), cool climate white vineyard at Schoenthal (“Beautiful Valley” in German) is one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest sites for growing fresh, crisp Sparkling and white wines. We believe these two unique vineyard sites enable us to grow exceptional white and red grapes without compromise, and our Estate grown Picnic, Clover and Amos wines are renowned for their delicate notes and distinctive fruit purity.

Tom Northcott grew up working in our vineyards and cellar door. His passion for wine grew, leading Tom to study a Bachelor Degree in Viticulture and Oenology, refining his craft with vintages in the South of France, Barossa Valley, Western Australia and Tasmania, before returning to Howard Vineyard in 2013 as Executive Winemaker. Tom oversees all vineyard and winemaking operations and his philosophy is simple; to make textural, cool climate wines that are light and elegant with a finesse that reflects the terroir of our vineyards.
