Overview

At Fox Gordon, all the individual wines and sub-brands carry the name of family and friends. Eight Uncles is a tribute to Jane and David's (founders) son Angus and his eight gregarious uncles. Those old boys love a good Barossa Shiraz, and this is exactly what this wine brilliantly succeeds at representing.

The Eight Uncles is released every vintage and is masterfully structured, consistently representing a premium wine.

Winery Profile

James Halliday 5 Red Star rated Winery (Australian Wine Companion 2015)

Fox Gordon was founded in 2000 to allow the owners to live the dream of producing, marketing and selling premium wines from the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills after learning their trade working in some of Australia's largest wine companies.

The founders, Sam and Rachel Atkins (nee Fox), David Cumming, Jane Gordon and Natasha Mooney wanted to produce great wines that provide outstanding value for money under a brand that would offer both integrity and beauty. Importantly Fox Gordon was formed with a long term vision to take necessary time to achieve the founders' goals and dreams.

The Fox Gordon name and logo celebrates the founding women in the company, using Rachel and Jane's surnames to create 'Fox Gordon' and the stylised images of Rachel and Tash to produce the now highly recognisable logo. All the individual wines and sub-brands would carry the name of family and friends.

Building a wine company of real integrity takes enormous commitment, investment, belief, passion and time and the owners of Fox Gordon would not have it any other way.
