Major move for third-generation winemaker Dolan

Rising winemaking star Tim Dolan has made a move across the Barossa from Peter Lehmann Wines, joining Dural Wines, which owns the Kaesler and Saint and Scholar brands. 

The third-generation winemaker is the son of Nigel Dolan and grandson of Bryan Dolan, who are regarded as two of the most influential Australian winemakers of their respective eras. 

Tim Dolan was awarded Dux of the Len Evans Tutorial in 2018, and has a degree in oenology from the University of Adelaide as well as being a show judge. 

Dural Wines CEO Catherine Turnadge said, “we are excited to have Tim on the team, making the wines his own, and taking them to the next generation”.

Dolan spent 10 years as the senior winemaker at Peter Lehmann - initally working under the legendary Andrew Wigan - and has done vintages in different regions across the US, Italy, Canada and Australia. 

“I am looking forward to working with the vineyard assets at Kaesler and making not only the shiraz that it’s famous for but also my favourite red variety, grenache." he said. 

"In addition, it will be exciting to be a part of building Saint and Scholar with Stephen Dew, through crafting exceptional wines from the unique Gumeracha estate in the Adelaide Hills.”

Dolan commences chief winemaker on September 19, joining senior winemaker Dew.

The creator of Kaesler’s famous The Bogan Shiraz; Reid Bosward, will be handing over the reins to Dolan to concentrate on other agricultural pursuits with Duxton Bees and in regenerative farming. 

He will remain a part of the business, passing his passion and knowledge to the next generation of Kaesler custodians.
