Frank Nardone and Patrick BakerWhile Joe Nardone and John Baker have now stepped back to relax and enjoy the fruits of their labour, the second generation, Frank Nardone and Patrick Baker, have stepped into the fray, with a shared vision of building upon their European heritage to produce great Australian wines.

Under Frank and Patrick's guidance, Nardone Baker Wines has assembled a core team of specialists, chief of whom is wine maker, Brian Light.

Brian is a former Australasian Winemaker of the Year who has twice been named Bushing King for Best Wine of the McLaren Vale Wine Show, one of the most highly regarded awards in the South Australian wine industry. He has 30 years experience as a winemaker, and in that time has won numerous trophies and gold medal awards at national and international wine shows.

Before entering the wine industry themselves, Frank Nardone and Patrick spent time establishing themselves in the business and marketing world - both becoming leaders in their own field. Today, as the business managers for Nardone Baker Wines, they bring significant commercial and marketing expertise, understanding the need to invest in building brands. They are determined to build a successful portfolio of brands in each market they enter and will leverage their business expertise and resources to achieve this goal.

This modern day and business like approach to wine business sets Nardone Baker Wines apart from other family owned wine producers and has resulted in success in several export markets including The United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong and, of course, Australia
