In 30 years the winery has only ever had two winemakers. Bill Sneddon began his career in winemaking in 1983 at Allandale and became the Chief Winemaker in 1986. Vintage after vintage he and the team at Allandale have been responsible for producing hundreds of award winning wines.
Bill worked a vintage in the Napa Valley in California and whilst there visited many other wine growing areas in California. He has also travelled extensively in the Burgundy and Rhône regions of France. Bill’s philosophy is to focus on producing new world wines of distinctive quality drawing on the values of old world styles.
Allandale makes all of its wines on-site using state-of-the-art winemaking equipment. The wines are of the highest quality and consistency, renowned for their distinctive varietal characters and superb balance of flavours.
