About Philip Shaw:
HOOSEGG makes small parcels of exceptional quality wines and was just voted 15 in the Top 100 wineries in Australia! HOOSEGG is the dream that Philip Shaw has been working towards for over 60 years. In 2015, he made the decision to transfer the daily running of the eponymous Philip Shaw Wines to his sons. Since then Philip has established a small winery, utilising parcels of select fruit from the Koomooloo vineyard which he established 30 years ago, state-of-the-art winemaking equipment, the best new oak – and all the lessons learned making wine over the past 60 years. This new venture is called HOOSEGG. Why? Well, the ‘HOO’ is Philip – to avoid any confusion with Philip Shaw Wines – and the ‘EGG’ is to symbolise ‘a new beginning’.
