David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness. The legacy of Eden Valley vineyards planted by Wynn in the 1960s & 1970s, incorporating significant old rootstock and extinct European clones, remains a bespoke choice for adherents of the abstruse, old guard in Australian..

Only grapes which achieve ideal ripeness, intense fruit flavour and natural acidity characteristic of premium cool climate fruit are used in the production of Evelyn County Estate wines. Viticultural practices such as hand pruning and hand picking, a well established Integrated Pest Management program and a unique trellising design eliminates the need for excessive chemical additives both in the vineyard and at the Winery - a feature increasingly important to the well informed wine consumer.

Small parcels of red grapes are hand-plunged during fermentation to maximise colour and flavour extraction. White wines are made reductively to retain and enhance fruit freshness, flavour and aroma. The Evelyn County winery aim for longevity with natural high acidity, powerful fruit characteristics, ageing in French oak and bold tannin structure. These wines can be cellared and are immediately delicious at any time after their release date.

Winemaking leadership comes from James Lance of the esteemed Lance family of Diamond Valley Vineyards' fame. His uncompromising commitment to quality is well known within the Australian and international wine industry context. The results speak for themselves in terms of the multiple medals and industry accolades achieved in both regional and interstate wine shows, newspaper and magazine reviews since the inaugural 1998 vintage.
