Evoi Wines

Evoi Wines is the result of one man’s determination and willingness to follow through on an idea. The idea, to craft super premium wines, in the Margaret River, in the image of the great French juggernaut styles of Burgundy and Bordeaux. 

Nigel Ludlow started Evoi, back in 2007, in the most unexpected place – his living room. Initially creating two barrels of Chardonnay for his first vintage, they lay fermenting, tucked away in his living room. A year later he knew he had something special. 

As the years progressed his range expanded beyond just Chardonnay. His range now includes: Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Tempranillo, Grenache and an award winning Bordeaux-styled blend.

Since that fateful first vintage, Nigel has continued to craft some of the Margaret River’s best wines. His winery is now rated five-red stars in James Halliday’s Wine Companion, placing him in the top ten percent of Australian winemakers.

Winemaker - Nigel Ludlow

Nigel Ludlow is a unique winemaker in the Australian wine scene. Since launching Evoi Wines from his living room, in 2007, he has operated the label almost single-handedly. He’s hands touch every aspect of the winemaking process - vine growing and harvest, maturation and bottling and ultimately to sales. He’s a one-man-band.

Originally from the land of the long white cloud, Nigel attainted his Graduate Diploma of Oenology and Viticulture from Lincoln University, NZ. Nigel found himself working vintages as a fly-in winemaker in world famous winemaking countries like Hungary, Spain and South Africa.

Nigel crafts his wines with one clear imperative – to produce wines with regionality and character. With the Margaret River famous for its Bordeaux-like climate, he successfully creates complex ‘right-bank’ Bordeaux style blends and soft complex Sauvignon Blanc Semillons in the style of the white Bordeaux’s of France.
