Adam Barton's Story
Adam Barton has been winemaking since 2001 and largely started as a result of tasting a glass of the 1965 Lindemans Hunter River Burgundy which he describes as magic!
Adam completed a commerce degree straight from high school. His first job was as an assistant manager of the cellar door at Rothbury Estate in the Hunter Valley. This led to subsequent roles in wholesale, retail & marketing. However, his interest always led back to the winery and to the winemakers who were very generous with their time and helped fuel Adam's interest in winemaking and production. He tested his way with several vintages as a cellar hand before finally studying to be a winemaker!
When asked what it was about his job he loved, Adam replied with 'The diversity of the work... driving tractors in the vineyard, in the winery, laboratory work, tasting, sales.... it's perfect for someone with the attention span of an ant."
In the past I would have described myself as a lover of reds. Since being involved with Naked Wines and the winemakers and other participants, I've opened my horizons and really embraced all wines and the qualities they have to offer. Knowledge is power.
Besides wine, I'm a passionate wanna be foodie! I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen- of course with a glass of NW to keep my company. I love all of NW wines especially anything from Stefano di Blasi, Dave Harvey, Rabbitt and Spaghetti, the Michauds, Katy Birmingham, Stephen Millier.. the list is endless! From the great PNW with love, LaDonna ALWAYS needs more wine!
