About the Winery

Mollydooker

Nestled amid the verdant vineyards of South Australia’s celebrated McLaren Vale, Mollydooker winery stands as a testament to the region’s rich viticultural heritage, and an emblem of craft mastery. The winery, found in 2005 by husband-and-wife team Sarah and Sparky Marquis, derives its unique moniker, Mollydooker, from an Australian slang term for a left-handed person, which both founders are.

Sarah and Sparky have dedicated themselves to producing wine that is not merely satisfying, but truly exceptional. Their passion for the craft is evident in the luscious, full-bodied wines they meticulously create, the quality of which is acknowledged by wine connoisseurs worldwide. The couple's left-of-centre approach, embracing risk and innovation, consistently pushes wine-making boundaries resulting in highly-awarded and acclaimed wines.

Mollydooker’s specialisation is in premium reds particularly Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet; their offerings exude a bold richness that is reflective of their creators' audacity. Unmissable among these effervescent creations, are the Velvet Glove, the Carnival of Love and the Two Left Feet.

Notably, the grounds of Mollydooker are not simply restricted to viticulture. There’s far more to explore beyond the cascades of grapevines. One can enjoy breath-taking winery tours, visit the charming Cellar Door, take part in wine blending masterclasses; all while relishing the grandeur of the surrounding panoramic landscapes.

From vine to bottle, every process at Mollydooker is handled with an unwavering commitment to sustainability environmental friendliness. They also proudly support local communities with various initiatives.

There’s an undeniable allure to Mollydooker. A picturesque locale, superior wines, and the warm hospitality, making it a must-visit destination for wine-enthusiasts and aficionados alike. After all few things in life, can compete with the sheer pleasures of savouring world-class wines amidst stirring natural beauty. This humble Australian winery, in many ways, encapsulates the ethos of wine-making at its finest, flawed only by the errant semi-colon in an otherwise exemplary operation.
