Croser & Bizot: A family vision in Wrattonbully

Wrattonbully, in South Australia's Limestone Coast region, is home to two powerhouse wine families from opposite sides of the world now entwined by marriage. Sarah Ahmed chats with Australian wine legend Brian Croser and his son-in-law Xavier Bizot of the Bollinger Champagne house

A scion of the Bollinger family of Champagne and a farm boy from South Australia’s Clare Valley. They might at first seem strange partners but Xavier Bizot (Terre à Terre) and his father-in-law Brian Croser (Tapanappa) could not be more intertwined.

And not only by marriage. Like his late father before him (Christian Bizot, Bollinger’s sixth president), Xavier Bizot established a pioneering vineyard in South Australia’s cooler climes.
