Hamish MacGowan
Angus the Bull, Australia

Hamish MacGowan was a man on a mission. Angus the Bull was a simple idea that just wouldn't go away. It soon became an obsession and then when it reached the point where it occupied all his waking moments, Hamish finally decided 'enough was enough' and in 2003 he established the Aberdeen Wine Company to turn this unique concept into a reality.

With all his energy now focused entirely on creating a new brand positioned to provide the ideal vinous accompaniment to prime beef, he chose to work exclusively with Cabernet Sauvignon and set about locating the most promising parcels from across Victoria and South Australia.

Confident he had achieved the required wine style and developed a very deliberate marketing strategy backed up with some smart packaging, Hamish launched his debut 2002 vintage of "The Bull" and hasn't looked back since.
