James Horsfall Wine Merchant
Showcasing unique wines from interesting and innovative producers
James Horsfall's wine journey began at a vineyard in the heart of the wine-growing region of Mudgee NSW. Here he learnt directly from winemakers about the aspects of wine; viticulture, winemaking and wine sales. James's time in Mudgee gave him a solid foundation in quality wine production. Since that time James has been a sommelier, wine judge, wine sales representative and managed a cellar door , James is still an active wine consultant curating bespoke wine lists for wine bars and restaurants, advising boutique bottle shops and wine buyers, and consulting winemakers.
James Horsfall created James Horsfall Wine Merchant to distribute and promote unique independent producers in the Top End. Working tirelessly with producers to bring the best of Australian wines to local restaurants, bars and bottle shops.
Our portfolio showcases honest winemakers and grape growers who work faithfully in their vineyards and cellars to make some of the best and most unique wines in the country. Exclusively working with producers that express their individual terroir, and their sense of place, sharing the experience in the age-old medium of wine.

This factious care assures that wine is kept in its optimal condition for our clients and ultimately, the consumer.
Currently representing 10 independent family-owned wineries with more producers coming on board in the coming months.
