Unseen, unheralded – they nurture, they wait, they harvest. Their meticulous attention to detail, their infectious enthusiasm, their infinite energy. Quietly and behind the scenes, they work tirelessly to craft elegant wines that are a true expression of the Archangel terroir.

Dr David Jordan

Consulting Viticulturist

“Archangel wines are truly expressive of the magic of  their vineyard where the individual care each vine receives allows for a harmony of climate, soil, and aspect”.

Dave’s extensive knowledge and experience in winegrowing, together with his innovative approaches, provide industry-leading guidance to the Archangel team. He shares the Archangel philosophy that wine begins its journey in the vineyard and to this end, ensures that only exceptional quality of fruit is grown on the vineyard.

Gary Ford

Viticulturist and Vineyard Manager

“I believe that the Archangel ethos of striving to do everything ‘that little bit better’ results in superb grapes that are making magnificent wines.”

With the utmost respect for the land, Gary tends the vineyard ‘in harmony’ with nature – a gentle approach, ensuring that what is taken out of the land is replaced in a natural way. Nurturing the health of the environment and enriching the vitality of the soils, Gary guides the development of Archangel wine.

Mary & Ian Zurakowski

Custodians

Balance and harmony in our natural environment; synergy between people and place – this is what inspires Archangel.”

From the start, Mary and Ian had aspirations to produce outstanding wine that would one day be worthy of being called Archangel. Wine that would express their story – their spirit of place. Together, their combined talents inspire spontaneity and flow, creativity and vision to the Archangel team.
