Vintec Club Podcast: your place to discover the best winemakers around the globe 🍷
Discover what makes Margaret River so unique in this series of 5 episodes where local winemakers share their vision about this iconic wine region.
Making wine was not initially on the cards for Nic Bowen. Born in the Great Southern region into a winemaking family, he was for a time a professional triathlete, before completing a commerce degree and working in financial planning. However, this path wasn’t for him.
Working vintage in Bordeaux made Nic appreciate the cultural interaction of wine, people, food and place. Returning to Australia he went back to university to gain a degree in winemaking and pursue a career in the industry. He landed a coveted role at Hardys in South Australia, making wines for Tintara and working closely with sparkling wine master Ed Carr at House of Arras. He's now the Chief Winemaker for Howard Park that he joined for the 2021 vintage.
