We first established our winery in 1968. My wife Nicki and I live in the beautiful hills of the Strathbogie Ranges overlooking the vines that grow the grapes that make our beautiful, elegant wines.
We oversee the day to day operations of our Central Victorian Winery and world class bottling facility. I love the wines that Jo is making and consider her to be one of Australia’s best winemakers. She has an amazing ability to make wonderful wines at every level, and continues to amaze us with her incredible wines.
Nicki and I are now very proud grandparents to seven little ones, born to Alex, Catriona and Angus. Alex and Angus have pursued careers in the wine industry; however the black sheep of the family, Catriona, is a corporate lawyer. The Australian Wine Industry has played a major part in our family’s everyday life, and we have loved watching the industry grow from a cottage industry to a major player on the world wine stage.
