Dr William Thomas Angove
Angove Family Winemakers was founded in 1886 by Dr William Thomas Angove. He and his young family had emigrated from Cornwall, England, to Tea Tree Gully, which lies in the foothills of Adelaide, South Australia. Establishing a medical practice Dr Angove soon found himself experimenting with winemaking as a tonic for his patients. Planting 10 acres in the 1800s initially, he produced dry table and fortified wine and soon found a growing customer base that turned his hobby into a business.
