Mr Mick is named after K.H. (Mr Mick) Knappstein, a legend within the Australian winemaking industry.

Mr. Mick Wines, Cellar Door and Kitchen are named after the late K.H. (Mr. Mick) Knappstein, an Australian winemaking legend and Tim Adams’ mentor and friend. Tim and his wife Pam are proud custodians of the landmark property at 7 Dominic Street, Clare, that now bears his name and houses a renowned restaurant, cellar door and gallery.  Tim and the winemaking and viticulture teams, continue Mr. Mick’s philosophy of making “affordable wines for everyone to enjoy”, introducing consumers to new and different varietals as well as crafting fine quality traditional wines.

Winemaker, Tim Adams

Tim Adams’ formative years were spent in South Australia’s Clare Valley.  As a Clare lad growing up among pioneering grape growers and winemakers, it was no surprise that in his final year of school Tim eschewed studying in favour of writing to Clare Valley wineries seeking employment.  The recipient of one such letter was Mr Mick Knappstein at the Stanley Wine Company, which led to Tim securing a position as winery cellar hand in 1975.  A fortuitous beginning for Tim, who found himself mentored by a revered pioneer of the modern Australian wine industry.  The first release of wines under Tim Adams’ own label was in September 1986, by which time Tim had left the Stanley Wine Company.  ‘Mr Mick’ continued to encourage the young winemaker, embracing Tim as his last apprentice, a relationship that continued until him passing in 1997.
