Launched in October 2016, the 'goon tycoons' are three mates with the impeccable wine-world pedigree and a dream to tinker and make playful wines from small parcels of fruit goodness they find in the vineyards in Margaret River and nearby regions during their “real jobs”. The team comprises 2019 Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year Julian Langworthy (of Deep Woods), John Fogarty as Viticulturist and Mark Fogarty in Finance. As the gents say, Goon Tycoons is their chance “to get rich, or get drunk trying.”
The range comprises small batch creations made with natural ideals but technical clout for ultimate drinkability. There are a couple of Rieslings and various Shiraz styles, a well-publicised Rose, Chardonnays, Grenache blends and more.
Wines can be tasted and purchased at the Tycoons' cellar door at Abbey Vale Winery in Yallingup, open Wednesday to Sunday 10am - 5pm. The cellar door is shared with Yallingup Cheese Company and Wulura Olive Oil.
