Under the roof of Boomtown Cooperative in Castlemaine Victoria, Tim Sproal modestly tells you that he has no formal wine training or experience, but is here to just make beautiful Australian single variety and blended wines.
Over the years Tim has worked with and leaned on generous vignerons like Jean-Yves Du Mont, Adam Marks, Gilles Lapalus, Jarad Curwood, Xavier Goodridge and Pat Underwood to help guide his hand and understanding. These days Tim makes small wines from great sites around Central Victoria. He sources handpicked grapes from small growers; some organic, some moving that way and some more conventionally grown. Working with native yeasts and prefers to ferment in smaller volumes with different approaches to build a unique complexity through the wines.
