Situated in an area of the Adelaide Hills that was littered with goldmines in the 1800s, the Bird in Hand winery
was purchased and planted in 1997 by Andrew Nugent, current Executive Director. Andrew has kept the close
historical links alive both in the naming of the winery and their wine ranges; Two in the Bush and Nest Egg were
the names of mineshafts in the Bird in Hand goldmine. From 23 ha under vine in Woodside and 5 ha in Clare,
Chief Winemaker Kym Milne produces classic examples of cool climate Chardonnay and Shiraz.
