First released in 2016, Comyns & Co have been changing the wine game for the past few years and with their new Cellar Door; they show no sign of slowing down!
Scott has had an incredible career in the Hunter Valley’s wine industry, with Chief Winemaking positions at Tempus Two, Briar Ridge and Pepper Tree.
His 17 plus years in the industry working for premium wine producers, working with premium fruit and accepting a swag of accolades along the way, has laid the foundations and created the passion and enthusiasm to create wines under his own family wine brand, Comyns & Co.
Opening their Cellar Door at Peppers Creek Village, Scott and Missy are amongst good company. Whilst you're visiting be sure to drop into Cafe Enzo, Pukara Estate Olives, and David Hook Wines which are all located just steps away.
Chatting with Scott he explains,
“Scott’s winemaking style is simple - to allow the fruit to express its individuality from vine to the bottle. The focus for Comyns & Co is to create traditional styles of Semillon and Shiraz from small batch parcels of premium Hunter Valley fruit, whilst also venturing into the more emerging varieties of Fiano and Tempranillo.”
Missy completes the team as the self-titled ‘Positive Vibes Manager’ and Cellar Door Manager. Missy’s fun, energetic and genuine personality come along with her. Her bubbly persona, positivity and a love of life brings warmth and honesty to Comyns & Co. Scott and Missy, along with their two young daughters Polly and Topsy, (and of course Dexter the dog!) have really injected some style into the Hunter Valley, and we’re loving it!
Located right in the heart of the Hunter Valley, with tranquil views overlooking the dam, a modern interior and of course good vibes; Comyns & Co should be high on your wine tasting list.
