Welcome... since you're here I suppose you want to learn a bit about us and what we do. And by us, I mean me.


My name is Ansel Ashby, and I've been indulging in this wonderful world of wine (rarely, but occasionally too much) for all of my adult life. I started drinking wine, then writing about wine. Then I decided to sell wine - well convincing people to buy it really...

On day, entirely by mistake, I found myself working in a vineyard and winery in New Zealand. Fast forward a bit, I’ve worked in wineries and vineyards in Australia, New Zealand, and my native USA. I moved to South Australia a few years ago and started Gatch in 2016.

I make wine - simple, delicious wines without the pomp and ceremony. I hope you enjoy drinking it as much as I enjoy making it.
