MEET THE FAMILY





Andrew Pike (Managing Director and Viticulturist)

Andrew was introduced to the wine industry through his father Edgar’s vineyard business and interests in Langhorne Creek and Padthaway. Andrew attended Roseworthy Agricultural College, graduating in 1976 with a Diploma in Agriculture, and immediately joined Wynns Coonawarra Estate.

After almost 4 years at Coonawarra, he joined Penfolds Wines in 1979 where he established a new vineyard project in the Clare Valley. The ‘seeds’ for Pikes Wines were immediately sown, as he quickly realised Clare’s potential. Andrew went on to become General Manger Vineyard Operations for the Southcorp Wine Group where he was responsible for over 6000 ha of corporate vineyard and all grape supply on a global basis. 

During this time he was also involved in the establishment of Pikes Wines in the Polish Hill River Valley sub region of Clare. In 1998 Andrew resigned his position at Southcorp to assist his brother Neil in the running of the Pikes family business.

Today Andrew is Managing Director for the Pikes Group and he and Cathy are major shareholders.

Cathy Pike (Family Ambassador)

Cathryn (Cathy) and Andrew married in 1980 and she was a founding partner of Pikes Wines in 1984. Over the next 20 years she juggled a professional career in school dental health management, raising a family of three active boys, whilst still managing to help out in Cellar Door, promotional events and business related artistic interests. She remains vitally involved in the business today as our 'Family Ambassador' and continues to be active in the artistic and cultural direction for the business.
