Gotham Wines was founded by Bruce Clugston and Fiona White with the release of Gotham Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2004. Bruce and Fiona have a long history in wine retail and wholesale and seized the opportunity to make their own wine with the 2004 vintage. Gotham Wines aim is to produce the best value wine money can buy. Since our first wine produced back in 2004 we have been striving to produce fantastic wines in a style consumers actually want to drink. Gotham wines takes it name from the pet name for New York city It was the great American writer Washington Irving who first named New York Gotham in his 1807 periodical, The Salmagundi. Our first Gotham wine from 2004 was as black as ink and suited the Gothic profile perfectly. We have since expanded into the Gotham Regional Vineyard Series and Old Vine Series as well as Single Vineyard special release.
