About Nick Spencer Wines

Inspired by Australia's rich winemaking history - Nick Spencer







Nick Spencer Wines is a small family-owned wine company nestled in the heart of New South Wales, Australia. Since our establishment in 2016, we've adopted a similar approach to the renowned Negociant model of France, carefully selecting fruit from top growers throughout New South Wales, including the esteemed regions of Gundagai, Tumbarumba, and Hilltops.

Led by the winemaker and founder, Nick Spencer, our dedication to excellence has garnered accolades rarely achieved in the industry, notably the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy & scholar of the Len Evans Tutorial. At Nick Spencer Wines, we craft wines that eloquently articulate the landscape from which they originate.

Guided by Australia's storied winemaking heritage, each of our award-winning wines is a testament to our unwavering commitment to both tradition and innovation. As custodians of the land, we strive to honor the past while embracing the evolving tastes of the modern palate.

“The seamlessness of his wines is quite remarkable. In fact I’m not quite sure that I’ve tasted an Australian red wine quite like this”

Our Philosophy - Paying homage to Australias storied winemaking heritage.

Drawing on inspiration from our rich Australian winemaking history, Nick Spencer Wines started with two red blends, a Light Dry red paying homage to the Australian 'Red Burgundies' and a Medium Dry Red paying homage to the Australian "Clarets" These two wines were the genesis of the brand and remain our two most important wines.  "Blending red varietals is an craft that seeks to balance complexity and harmony, enhancing each grape's unique characteristics to create a wine greater than the sum of its parts. We should be focussing more on the style of a wine, its structure, balance and where it from etc rather than what variety is" - Nick Spencer
