In the beginning, one of McLaren Vale’s oldest wineries was the setting for a chance meeting between a young French winemaker and newly graduated Australian viticulturist.

Emmanuelle and Toby Bekkers have lived, worked and raised a family amongst the vineyards of McLaren Vale, South Australia.

BEKKERS wine is the latest chapter of their story.


With their young family, Emmanuelle and Toby travel regularly to Europe and visit an extensive network of esteemed wine makers and friends. After each trip they return with new inspirations and an appreciation of timeless, traditional methods. This serves to enhance a rare and special commitment to producing McLaren Vale wines of the highest quality.
