Our History

Wine barrelsThe history of Nardone Baker Wines stems back two generations to Joe Nardone and John Baker.

Their roots originating from Europe and then establishing landholding in South Australia. 

Joe Nardone was raised in Italy, where he developed a love of the land, its grapes and the process of creating fine wine. In 1952 Joe brought his traditional wine making skills to Australia where he set about making full-bodied red wines from grapes grown in South Australia's ideal climates and soil types. 

John Baker was raised in country England and he too had a passion for producing fine wine. This led him to purchase land in South Australia in the same year that he landed and to further his knowledge of wine at Roseworthy Agricultural College. 

Joe and John have since come together through the marriage of their children. 

The second generation, Frank Nardone and Patrick Baker, now brothers in law, continue the winemaking tradition of their families.
