Andrew Garrett Wines, established by winemaking entrepreneur Andrew Garrett, is now operated by the greater Cockatoo Ridge group of wineries. Andrew Garrett began his career as a cellar hand in the mid 1970s. As a 26-year-old he launched his own wine label in 1984, and within six years his products and marketing flair had built a business with $23 million of assets, and turning over $12 million a year.

His determination was displayed after a fire in 1988 destroyed his Magill Cellars, and a hailstorm caused nearly $2 million damage to his Yarra Valley vineyards. Restructuring to rebuild the winery's operations, he eventually lost control of his label, and today Andrew Garrett wines are owned and operated by the greater Fosters group.

Today, fruit for the entire Andrew Garrett range, is sourced from selected vineyards, earmarked for their capacity to grow good fruit, crushed and processed back at the wineworks, and fashioned into some of the country's most popular wines. The umbrella company, International Vintners Australia, is committed to extensive, long-term viticulture development and winemaking operations within Australia. The company continues to approach ventures with professionalism, planning and confidence.
