Winery Profile

The Pawn had its beginning in 2002 as a "once" off experiment between viticulturist & winemaker Tom Keelan and vigneron David Blows. They had a craving to make into wine a small parcel of Petit Verdot from their Springhill Vineyards in Macclesfield. This wine was originally for their own consumption as both were self proclaimed aficionados of this variety.

The pair had become perturbed and jaded that certain grape varieties were being used as blending tools by the bigger wine companies and that the potential of alternative wine styles wasn't being allowed to shine within the wine industry.

The resultant first vintage was a "cracker of a wine" and suggested to them that an opportunity existed to develop a wine range which rebelled against the corporate players of the wine industry. Tom and David began to identify idyllic viticultural sites and hand selected parcels of fruit within the Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek to produce wines that were not only a bit unconventional, but enjoyable to drink, incredibly food friendly, and made in a style that reflects their true origins – the ultimate in hand crafted wine.
