Beach Road Wines was started in 2006 by Tony and Briony Hoare

My nephew strongly suggested that I catch up with Briony and Tony as he loved their wines. I love them too and decided that they were the best examples of Australian made Italian varietals I have seen. We were happy to support them.

After long careers working for major wine companies, the Hoare’s decided to start their own winery in their McLaren Vale garage with just a single octave barrel. Briony spent years living and working in Italy where she fell in love with Italian wine varieties, later Briony and Tony’s travels and experiences further fuelled their unending curiosity and passion for wine.

Today, Beach Road Wines’ purpose-built winery produces many different varieties of wines with a focus on alternative varieties. Not surprisingly then, that the winery’s restaurant features wood fired pizzas – further complementing their unique Italian varietal wines.

Down to earth Briony and Tony love stomping grapes, squishing skins and making wine designed to share with friends, family and visitors to their cellar door. In the idyllic McLaren Vale, Beach Road Wines can be simply summed up…

Good food, good wine, good company.
