“I love getting my hands dirty making wine with a mate. Wines we love just getting stuck into. It doesn’t get any better.”

Woods Crampton

Since 2010, Aaron Woods and Nicholas Crampton have had an insatiable love affair with South Australia’s historic Barossa Wine Region. Unrestrained by tradition, this intuitive winemaking duo are driven by their passion to craft both new wave Barossa Shiraz as well as unique, old-world, varietals; sourced from old-vine vineyards.

Woods and Crampton turned to the established Sons of Eden winery to aid them in producing the style of wine they love. Sons of Eden’s focus on creating wines that express the flavour and personality of unique, Barossa vineyards aligned with the Woods Crampton winemaking philosophy and so the partnership was born.

Their list of premium wines ranges from opulent Shiraz and Riesling’s to distinctive old-world Mataro, Graciano and Bonvedro.

Since inception, production has rapidly increased from 1’500 to almost 12’000 cases along with a rapidly expanding range that currently encompasses fourteen different wines. The combination of premium quality wine and exceptional value saw Woods Crampton named one of James Halliday’s Top 10 Best Value Wineries of 2017.

Winemaker - Aaron Woods & Nicholas Crampton

Label designer Aaron Woods and marketer Nicholas Crampton conspired to become winemakers over a glass of red; or three.

Under the tutelage of winemaker Igor Kucic and using the Sons of Eden winery, Nicholas and Aaron have amassed a range of 14 separate wines using five varietals; all made with minimal interventionist techniques.

Nicholas’ wine journey began in Sydney's restaurant scene where he became sommelier of Galileo restaurant. Moving into wine marketing, he worked for Southcorp (now Treasury) and managed brands like Seppelt and Penfolds before ultimately heading the team importing boutique European wines into Australia.

As a graphic designer, Aaron’s creativity is evident on every label. It’s Aaron’s consumer perspective, teamed with Nicholas’ wine knowledge that has created what could be the perfect winemaking duo.

Critically acclaimed and with a huge consumer following; Woods and Crampton deliver on their philosophy of producing quality, interesting wines with amazing value.
