2002 saw the first Octave barrel in the back shed of Briony and Tony’s house in McLaren Vale. What started as a home brew continued to grow, doubling to two Octaves the following year.
In 2005 Briony began a wine consultancy and hatched the concept of Beach Road Wines. Just a year later, Briony and Tony’s home garage was taken over by their new venture. Today, Beach Road Wines purpose-built winery produces many different varieties and styles of wine with a focus and passion for alternative varieties and styles.
