John Duval

About John Duval

John Duval is an internationally acclaimed winemaker who formerly headed the winemaking team at Australia’s most legendary estate, Penfolds. Responsible for producing the iconic Penfolds Grange, as well as new cuvées such Bin 407 and ‘RWT’ Shiraz during his tenure, Duval is one of the single most influential winemakers over the last century.

 

Experiencing his first vintage at Australia’s greatest estate in 1974, Duval spent the following 12 years learning from founder Max Schubert and head winemaker Don Ditter. 1986 saw John Duval become only the third person responsible for one of the world’s greatest wines in Penfolds Grange.

 

Duval’s mastery in winemaking led him to establish his own winery, John Duval Wines, in 2003. With a focus on old vine Shiraz and other Rhône varietals, he makes small volumes of magical wines from the Barossa Valley. Since 2016, John Duval has been joined by his son, Tim. The father-and-son partnership continues the obsessive experimentation and introduction of new and exciting cuvées to the market.
