The Bress Team

Adam Marks
Bress Founder and Wine & Cider Maker

A qualified viticulturist and winemaker with more than 25 years’ experience, Adam has made wine throughout the world for both large and small producers. Disillusioned with large corporate winemaking, Adam established Bress in 2001 with his wife Lynne Jensen with a desire to produce wines from fruit sourced from notable viticultural regions, using a minimal intervention approach in the winery. Adam is an entertaining character and his passion for wine, cider and sustainable farming is evident in all that he does.  If you are lucky enough to visit Bress when Adam is offering a tour and barrel tasting it will be an experience you won’t forget!
