After taking over from his father Doug Collett in 1982, Scott is the 2nd generation custodian of the gilded history of Woodstock Estate. With more than thirty five years wine industry experience both locally and abroad, it is Scott that sets the direction for Woodstock. He is a self confessed lover of the generous wines of his beloved McLaren Vale, steadfastly believing that his wines should be complimented by the very best of local produce, and the boisterous company of a coterie of close friends.
A qualified winemaker with an inquisitive mind, much of Scott’s time is spent meticulously managing the rich vineyard resources of the Woodstock Estate. Scott shares the credence of many of the top wine producers of the world that their best wines are indeed made in the vineyard. To this end, closest to Scott’s heart is our single vineyard of 110 year old Shiraz vines which is the source for our famous flagship wine- Woodstock ‘The Stocks’ Shiraz. Scott can often be found here talking to and nurturing these vines, when looking for a break from the daily responsibilities of supervising the estate.
For those that may not have had the opportunity to visit Woodstock Estate, Scott regularly takes both our wines and stories on tour, preaching the gospel of Woodstock domestically and to many of our overseas supporters. If you happen to see Scott on his travels, please be sure to introduce yourself, and partake in Scott’s insistence of “…three bottles of red before bed”.
