Sandy Godfrey started Godfrey Wines in 2008. From 2008 he knew that in order to be a competitive small wine business in Australia we would need to create a new model that maintained low capital intensity and versatility of production. As such he purchases fruit from well-established grape growers to make the wines he wants. Sandy built a winery in the small town of Springton in Eden Valley, South Australia and made wines there from 2008 to 2015. Sandy is very proud of the wines he produces and if you have not yet had a chance to try the range – send us an email and we will let you know what we can put together for you from the Cellar, also keep an eye on our Cellar Releases.
In 2016 Sandy started making wines with high-end fruit from Orange, NSW including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Rose, Shiraz and Cabernet. All of our wines are barrel fermented, use minimal additives and are unfiltered. The Alice Sauvignon Blanc is maturing beautifully in bottle, with hints of older French Oak and length from time on yeast lees. The Poppy Belle Chardonnay spent 12 months in new French Oak and is rich and powerful, reminiscent of classic Australian oaked Chardonnay. The Charlotte Pinot Noir has just settled into a beautiful drinking rhythm with lighter tannins, savoury fruit characters and new French Oak to finish. Stocks are extremely limited.

Of course there is more to the story, but you will have to come to one of our events to hear it!
