Corryton Burge Matthew Pellew Winemaker

Matthew Pellew, Chief Winemaker

Chief Winemaker Matt Pellew has a winemaking career that spans more than 30 years. A born and bred South Australian, his experience and dedication to our family makes him a vital part of the Corryton Burge team. His winemaking studies and working life have taken him to the best wine regions around the world, and of course, back to the superlative Barossa. Matt has honed his craft with varieties such as Riesling, Chardonnay and Shiraz. However, when asked about his secret winemaking passion, Matt will admit to enjoying the challenge of mastering blends of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre and producing exquisitely balanced Cabernet from Eden Valley. Matt has an extensive knowledge of oak and selects barrels from multiple coopers around the world, a process equal parts science and art that fulfils the Corryton Burge winemaking philosophy of bringing out the best in each variety. Matt describes being a winemaker as a role that encompasses the best aspects of life. The opportunity to travel and meet wine lovers around the globe excites him as he shares the joy of wine.
