Andrew La Nauze brings 20 years of wine industry experience
to the Marx Real Estate team. Raised in the Barossa, his interest in viticulture
began at Nuriootpa High School, well known for its teaching
of Viticulture and Winemaking.
However initially he obtained a degree in Radiography before the Winemaking bug
hit him and he graduated Oenology at the University of Adelaide in 2001.
His first two years of experience were gained at Norfolk
Rise Winery in Robe, then in 2004 he commenced as a Winemaker at one of the
Barossa’s largest wineries Yalumba, as a Winemaker. At Yalumba Andrew has taken
on a number of winemaking responsibilities covering most grape growing regions
throughout South Australia where Yalumba source their grapes. Andrew maintains
a full time role at Yalumba but brings to the Team a wealth of management and
goal setting experience as well as a thorough knowledge of viticulture and
winemaking enterprises which are vital to understanding the needs of potential
Vendors from the viticulture sector.
Besides a love of wine and family, Andrew keeps busy by playing the guitar (proficiently)
and singing (rather badly), playing basketball and tennis and keeping his
rather large garden under control.
