|Chief Winemaker. Nick Walker
At 6'4”, former Australian Rules League footballer Nick Walker casts a long shadow. Although a talented league footballer with the Norwood football club, it is Nick's winemaking skills that have forged his reputation.
The Barossa Valley born and bred gentle giant graduated in 1982 from Roseworthy Agricultural College with a degree in Applied Science in Oenology.
In 1983 he commenced work as assistant winemaker at Krondorf Wines under the the guidance of Mike Press. In 1985 Mildara took over Krondorf and was later to merge with Wolf Blas. Nick continued to take on more responsibilities and programs within the group.
In 1990 he had his 1 st vintage with his father Norm and this completed the 3 rd generation of winemakers in the Walker family.
Nick Walker's family history, vast experience, local knowledge, work ethics and plain talent make the winemaker. His loyalty, honesty, humour and friendship make the man.
Heath Wines are proud to have Nick Walker as our Chief Winemaker.
