Sean Thackery - Wine Maker
As many of your know, we've a passion for exploring the path less travelled, crusading our way through some of the world's most interesting and controversial wines. Sean Thackery has been on our radar for some time and the culmination of favourable planetary alignements has now brought him into our orbit. Sean is the 'natural' winemaker protagonist State side and it's an enormous privilage and honour to be able to Offer his wines in Australia.
Many of you may have seen Sean on Oz Clarkes & James May, Big Wine Adventure featured on SBS recently. After numerous customer requests we thought it time to introduce his creations here. We contacted Sean and have worked with an importer to bring these illuminating wines to our Shores for the first time. Apart from our offering, they will only be listed with a small number of selected Three Hat restaurants.
Even in the liberal ferment of creativity that is central California, Sean is a man of arrestingly unique philosophies. He has never undertaken formal winemaking training, and draws more inspiration from his art history degree when making his wines. His opinionated, and controversial, thoughts are at once incredibly progressive, yet welcome scepticism. He has a following of devout wine collectors worldwide that ensure his wines are almost impossible to find.
We could write in further detail about Sean and barely scratch the surface of his philosophies and ideas, so, it’s worth watching this video that delves more into Sean’s mind http://www.chow.com/stories/11546
