Thomas Goss

McLaren Vale, South Australia

One of the original McLaren Vale pioneers, Thomas Goss (1810-1890), his wife Mary Ann (1813-1891) and their children arrived in South Australia from Devonshire in 1849. After success in the Victorian gold fields he established an iconic farming property, Ingleburne, now home to some of the McLaren Vale region's leading vineyards.

In 2010, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth, it was decided to release a range of affordable McLaren Vale red wines and Adelaide Hills white wines under the Thomas Goss label. Introduced to the US market by Epicurean Wines and now made by Alexia Roberts, the award-winning wines are a tribute to the persistence of Thomas Goss and his family's long contribution to the establishment of South Australia’s rich agricultural heritage.
