In 1997, Andrew Nugent planted vineyards and an olive grove on 100 acres on Bird in Hand Road, Woodside. The road itself was named after the "Bird in Hand" gold mine that operated in the district in the 1850s. Four hundred metres above sea level, the vineyards face north and boast deep, well drained red earth, formed from metamorphic rock. To extend the winemaking range available to Bird in Hand, another vineyard in the famous wine-growing region of Clare has been aquired to provide fruit for world class Riesling and Shiraz.
