Tower Estate has entered an exciting new phase with the announcement of a dynamic new team and a host plans set to take the Hunter Valley property into the future as the ultimate Australian country experience.
Established in 1999, Tower Estate includes Relais & Chateaux property Tower Lodge, intimate country guest house, the Convent, the historic 1876 Roberts Restaurant, unique cellar restaurant Nine and a stellar wine offering from Tower Estate Winery.
Tower Estate was born from a shared vision between renowned business leader, Ken Cowley and wine legend Len Evans. Mr Cowley, a former director of The News Corporation for over 30 years and chairman of RM Williams since 1994, has turned his passion and energy to work alongside his son, managing director Matt Cowley to take Tower Estate into the future.
Executive manager Susan Williams has moved from the corporate world and is now set to take Tower Estate through its next stage of change and growth. Susan is joined by business development manager Skye Johnson and chef George Francisco. Andrew Cooper has been appointed general manager of the Tower Estate Winery.
