Esca Booth started his working life as a teacher. However after working for Chateau Tahbilk, he decided that winemaking was his future. He purchased the phylloxera devastated Taminick Vineyards and began replanting the vines on resistant rootstock. Some of the vines on the original vineyard were table grapes but Esca realised that grapes planted in the rich granite soils of the Taminick area would produce intensely flavoured fruit, perfect for winemaking. Esca married Adelaide Smith in 1905 and the Booth dynasty began at Taminick. Esca and Adelaide began improving the property. They built the stone cellar in 1914, quarrying rock from the Warby Ranges located behind the winery site. In 1919 Cliff Booth, the second winemaker in the Booth family, was born. In that same year the oldest existing vines still on the property were planted. In addition to 21 acres of Shiraz, four-and-a-half acres each of Trebbiano and Alicante Bouche were planted. Cliff, who by this stage was one of nine children, left school at 14 to learn the art of winemaking. By the 1970's Cliff had discovered that he had a real aptitude for winemaking and together with his brother Geoff, began to manage the property, planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Muscat to complement the existing vines.
