LEADING THE CHARGE
The Awatere River Wine Company crafts world-class wines. Having grown up amid vines and wines, company founder Louis Vavasour was drawn to the industry and graduated from Adelaide’s prestigious Roseworthy College in 2002. He then gained winemaking experience in South Australia, California and France, before returning home to establish his own company.
Louis is both focused on achieving his vision of creating a next generation world class wine business, and reflective of the past, which for the Vavasour family dates back to the days of William the Conqueror and has been closely connected to the Kings of England throughout history. He employs four philosophies in all facets of his operations; intuition, minimal intervention, sustainability and excellence. This is achieving increasing success.
