It’s been a few years since we had the pleasure of sharing some wine with the gentlemanly Tony Parkinson, and he’s as astute as ever.


Almost seven years to the day I interviewed McLaren Vale Vigneron Tony Parkinson on a side street just off Ossington Avenue…

When I heard that he was back in town to show off his new Penny’s Hill, Thomas Goss, and Black Chook bottlings, I was eager to meet up and get his earnest take upon the state of the nation when it comes to the Australian wine industry today, and how his company has continued to evolve in an ever-changing international marketplace.

With his trademark blend of sage wisdom and dry wit, Tony is always a real pleasure to share some time with.
