British born Tim Wildman became a Master of Wine in 2008. He started his own project, Wildman Wine, in 2014 becoming a pioneer of the pétillant natural style in Australia working with Mediterranean grape varieties in the Adelaide Hills. Cult classics Astro Bunny and Piggy Pop whose juicy colours and funky labels give a perfect insight into the wines he bottles and Wildman's experimental methods.
Since returning to native soil in 2018, Wildman has turned his attention to rescuing disappearing grape varieties and neglected vineyards in the UK, making low-intervention pet-nats for his Lost in a Field project and forming a Lost Vineyard Preservation Society. The first wine from this project shows that this new focus on heritage hasn't removed any of the fun from the man who said “my pét-nat brings all the boys to the yard”.
