The world’s biggest deliberate wine destructions

Getting even in Barossa

Trevor David Jones admitted to draining AUS$60,000 of Shiraz and Chardonnay at Kellermeister Wines

In August this year a Barossa Valley winemaker confessed to destroying more than AUS$60,000 of Shiraz and Chardonnay by draining the tanks of a rival producer.

Trevor David Jones, 59, entered a plea of guilty to two counts of damaging property at Kellermeister Wines at Lyndoch in South Australia’s Barossa Valley in February 2015.

He was accused of opening the taps on four tanks of Chardonnay and Shiraz on Sunday, 22 February, at the winery, which Jones’ parents had founded in 1976.

Trevor Jones had previously worked at the winery but had left to start Trevor Jones Fine Wines, also in Lyndoch, in 2010.
