Tony Mangan, Australian vintner Died


Tony Mangan died on November 6, 2015. He was an Australian vintner.

Tony was unable to get satisfactory outlets in Australia, so he then arranged for container loads of product to be sent to market areas in China.

In the world of viticulture, Tony became one of the largest private grape growers in Australia.

For the last 25 years the founders of Bolder TM Tony and Julie Mangan have been at the forefront of innovation in the viticulture and horticulture industries.
