Quealy-McCarthy winemaking team returns

Quealy Winemakers has announced Kevin McCarthy will join the team, reuniting the work of the original couple who introduced Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio into Australia.

McCarthy, together with his wife Kathleen Quealy, first established T’Gallant Wines in 1990 on Mornington Peninsula.

After leaving T’Gallant in 2006, Quealy formed Quealy Winemakers on the family property in Balnarring. McCarthy stayed on at T’Gallant to help pay the bills as Quealy Winemakers grew.

Both McCarthy and Quealy have now decided it's time for Kevin to return to the family business.

Quealy Winemakers have pursued a path of innovation and excellence on Mornington Peninsula.

The company's range includes the field blend Pobblebonk; Turbul Friulano; two single vineyard Pinot Gris (Tussie Mussie and Musk Creek) and two single vineyard Pinot Noir wines (17 Rows & Musk Creek).

“Quealy Winemakers now makes 10,000 cases annually, with most grapes from our own vineyards," Quealy said.

"We have grown carefully over the last eight vintages and we are now confident we have a solid business to stand on our own feet.

“It’s great timing for Quealy, with the business going from strength to strength.

"We make colourful and imaginative wines so Kevin’s energy, experience and creative input will be invaluable as we continue to reach even higher grades of excellence in winemaking."

Distributed throughout Australia, the full range of Quealy wines is also available for tasting at their winery cellar door.
