In case you hadn’t heard the good news, Helmut Konecsny, owner of Rochford Wines, has purchased Toolangi Vineyards and has immediately started ringing in the changes. Apart from the new packaging, Konecsny and his team seem very serious about rejuvenating and upgrading the work in the vines.
In terms of winemaking, Toolangi will now control its own destiny with the talented and experienced Marc Lunt at the helm. Lunt is a Burgundy nut who has done multiple vintages at such legendary estates as Armand Rousseau and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. He is determined to bring more cohesiveness to the winemaking and to get the best from the Toolangi vineyard.
