Tomich Wines

Tomich Wines is a multi-generations, family owned boutique winery. 

Our vineyard is situated 400m above sea level in a 1,000mm rainfall zone, which is true cool climate country. Ancient soils of red clays over quartz and schist produce delicate wines, a true expression of the ‘terroir’. The region promotes long, slow ripening of the fruit allowing for the production of wines that display intense, pure fruit flavours, which are complex in nature. The vineyard is located in the ‘dress circle’ location of the Adelaide Hills, adjacent to Shaw & Smith iconic M3 vineyard with Nepenthe and Bird in Hand down the road.

The Tomich family has been making wine since 1946. Family patriarch John Tomich learnt first hand the skills and knowledge required to grow grapes from his father Ivan, who was born to a miner in Broken Hill in 1913. John, with an eye to detail, whilst endeavouring to produce better wines, completed his post graduate studies in wine making and undertook his Masters of Wine program in London.

The vineyard and winery are run by Randal and John, whose passion for the land and wine is backed up by a winemaking team, past and present, including Peter Leske, Tim Knappstein and Andrew Pike. Randal’s

viticultural skills, particularly vineyard development and soils, are well respected in the industry having established vineyards in Australia and California for the likes of Penfolds, Pikes and Monterey Pacific.

With 27 individual blocks planted over 322 acres, this allows the winemakers the diversity to select the perfect parcels of fruit with the right fruit expression. We farm with an organic approach, trading softly. Soil structure is key allowing vine roots to spread out and explore more soil and we rely on natural organisms to make nutrition from compost which the vines thrive on.
