Thomas William Carlyon Angove
Third generation Thomas William Carlyon Angove joined the business after completing a Degree in Oenology at the Adelaide University’s Roseworthy campus where he finished as Dux of the course. He followed the winemaking footsteps of his forbears. It was under his direction that the company saw substantial developments, with expansion of crushing and processing facilities as well as the planting of the Nanya Vineyard—at the time the largest single vineyard in the Southern Hemisphere. Tom was responsible for the early development of the “Bag in Box” for wine in 1965. A Patron of the Wine Industry in 1993, Thomas William Carlyon Angove was awarded an Order of Australia in 1994 for service to the industry and was one of the most respected figures in Australian wine.
