Andy Cook dnd Philippe Gard

Featured Producer

Andy Cook lived and worked in St Andrews for many years before moving to New Zealand to study the art of wine making. After a few years honing his skills there he settled in the picturesque town of Collioure in the south of France. This is Basque country, rugged and beautiful, just like the man himself. Andy now has a new purpose built, modern winery which was built in partnership with legendary Roussillon producer, Phillip Gard of Coume de Mas. He always has several projects on the go but his main focus is Mas Cristine, Tramontane Wines and Consolation Wines.

Mas Cristine is an old estate which produces classic Cotes de Roussillon wines. This is an unfashionable and misunderstood region but the wines are terrific and offer tremendous value. Tramontane wines focuses on easy drinking Southern French varietals whilst Consolation Wines produces an electric range of small production wines made from the best parcels each year. These are bottled as single varietals to show off the grape variety and explore the potential of each grape variety each year.
