The Bird in Hand Winery was established when Andrew Nugent moved deeper into the Adelaide Hills and planted vineyards on Bird in Hand Road, Woodside. The grapes are grown in the mineral rich soils above the 1879 “Bird in Hand” gold mine. The property includes 100 acres of vineyards & olive grove, cellar door, wine & olive production facilities and the picturesque family residence. A second family property is in the Clare Valley. The Bird in Hand brand began in 1997 when viticulturalist and winemaker Andrew Nugent left Tatachilla and planted the family vineyard on Bird in Hand Road Woodside in the Adelaide Hills.

The grapes developed and with the introduction of Bird in Hand wine, the family is now nationally and internationally recognised as producing and distributing South Australia’s finest wine, olives and oil. As at July 2004, the barrel and tank wine storage facility was completed. In January 2005 the Bird in Hand Winery opened the doors of its tasting room to the public. The cellar door is open daily. Visitors can sample international acclaimed wines and tour the winery and meet the winemaker.

The wine, olives and oil can now be found not only through out Australia but in over 14 countries throughout US, Europe and Asia and in the some of the world’s finest establishments including: Harvey Nichols (UK), Dean & Deluca (US), The grEAT Gourmet Food Hall (HK) and David Jones (Aust).
