Naked Winemaker

Giles Cooke



An Englishman, making wine in Australia and living in Scotland...

    • Giles spent the first 25 years of his career selling wine in the UK, before he took the plunge and headed to Australia to try his hand at winemaking. 
    • Turns out Giles was a natural. He knows exactly what UK wine drinkers like to drink, so his small-scale wines are made with passion and gut instinct, rather than following instructions, formulas or recipes.
    • Giles, who is based in Edinburgh (he travels to Australia a few times a year to work his magic) is one of only 409 people in the world to hold the illustrious 'Master of Wine' qualification, the ultimate accolade in wine.
