Melbourne businessman Tony Cotter is the Managing Director of Gentle Annie Wines and Managing Partner of Gentle Annie Vineyard. Tony started the vineyard in 1996 with long time friend and Dookie local, Peter McManus. Tony’s inspiration for starting Gentle Annie arose from time spent with relatives on their vineyard in St. Germain d'Esteuil, Médoc, France. Tony and Peter discovered that the unique and limited (11km x 8km) Dookie terroir was perfectly suited to growing exceptional grapes for winemaking. Chief winemaker David Hodgson, along with winemaker Tony Lacy, have extensive winemaking experience in the Central Victorian region. At Gentle Annie, David and Tony can indulge in using what they consider to be the highest quality wine grapes to be found anywhere in Australia, producing smooth, flavor rich reds and subtle whites, delicately perfumed. Kate is the eldest of Tony’s five daughters and is the Marketing Manager for Gentle Annie Wines. Kate is responsible for the domestic and international sales and marketing. Kate manages export relationships, labeling, trade shows, mail order sales, public relations and assists with managing the business. Gentle Annie’s viticulturist Scott Feldtmann has a long association with viticulture in the Dookie region. His ancestors along with the Ryans (Gentle Annie’s family) were the first settlers in the area. Scott has pioneered low input, minimal irrigation on the red soils, resulting in low yielding vines producing tiny berries with exquisite colour and fruit flavor. Scott deliberately maintains low yields, around 5 tonnes per hectare. This approach guarantees ultra-premium fruit at harvest. Gentle Annie’s fruit has won the coveted Brown Brother’s Grower of the Year award twice, the Best Shiraz four times and Best Cabernet three times. Read less
