A new direction for Hatch

Hatch spent a lifetime in the bold pursuit of perfection, making wines that have won major global awards against the best of the best. Launching HATCH, he wanted to make elegant and sophisticated wines using the best regional varietal expressions of fruit. He is enjoying the opportunity to build their small, family-run brand from the ground up. From making and blending the wine, to marketing, showcasing and selling the wines. It’s a chance to share his continuing passion and knowledge with a whole new audience.

Launching Hatch

His retirement provided an exciting opportunity to launch HATCH. And his winemaking philosophy is simple. "Make exceptional wines that respect the unique characters of the very best regions and varieties." Wines that show varietal purity, balance, elegance and finesse. Wines that are excellent when young and vibrant, but will reward with aging.
