Cellar Session: Tomfoolery Winemakers

Posted by Jock Wilberforce on

Winemaker and owner of Tomfoolery; Ben Chipman (known as ‘Chippy’), will be joining us on the night to share his knowledge of The Barossa Valley and his wine collection.

Starting out in 2004, The Tomfoolery winemaking philosophy is simple: small parcels of fruit, hand-crafted through a simple and relatively non-interventional approach with the aim to truly reflect the individual characteristics of the vineyard and variety. Wines are matured in barrel, stacked in pyramids on traditional stillage, and bottled with no fining or filtration.
