Mollydooker: The term itself being Aussie slang for a “left hander’, was a befitting name for their company as both Sarah and Sparky Marquis, owners of Mollydooker, are mollydookers.
The magical tale of Mollydooker starts with a love story …The year was 1991, Sarah and Sparky Marquis had recently married on the back of finishing their winemaking studies with the world at their feet. They had each other, they had $1000 between them and they had dreams of developing their own business.
Through ups and downs, finally in June 2006, Robert Parker reviewed their very first vintage for Mollydooker. He rated The Boxer as 'Best Value Red Wine of the World', and Maitre D' as the Forth. In August 2006, when the Carnival of Love (WA 99) and Enchanted Path (WA 96) were released, they sold out 5 days. Since then Mollydooker has been a story of phenomenal and consistent success!
The following year, their Velvet Glove Shiraz became their fifth wine to be awarded 99 points by The Wine Advocate and the Carnival of Love has been listed in Wine Spectator’s ‘Top Ten wines in the World’ three times, including being #2, and has also been #1 in Australia two times!
