Andrew Higgins is a man devoted to the wine industry, why else would you complete not one but two industry relevant degrees? By attaining a detailed knowledge of not just wine science but also viticulture Andrew or Higgo as he is known, has been able to blend his practical knowledge with a creative flair. This balance in wine understanding has led to him now being responsible for overseeing the stylistic development and winemaking across the McW range.
Unlike many winemakers, Andrew is of the opinion that price is not a true reflection of quality. In fact his advice when choosing your wine from the shelf is refreshingly honest ‘don’t get too hung up on everything, it’s only a drink. Be adventurous’. This is supported by his own vision for McW which is to ‘deliver contemporary wines of a superb quality’. Indeed, Andrew sees the future of winemaking as ‘continuing to aim for more food friendly wines, but with greater concentration of fruit flavour’.
