About me & my work:

I am a wine producer, international wine judge, wine consultant, occasional wine writer and lapsed restaurateur. Martin Shaw and I aim to make exciting, refined wines exclusively from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills and Tasmania that rank amongst Australia's best.

In 1988 I became the first Australian to pass the rigorous Master of Wine examination winning the inaugural Bollinger Tasting Medal the same year. In 2008 I was awarded an Order of Australia (AM) for my contribution to the Australian Wine Industry. I featured in the Decanter Magazine’s Power List 2009, 2011 and 2013 of the top 50 movers and shakers in the world of wine.

I am a strong advocate for Australian fine wine both within Australia and internationally.
