Our Team

Meet The Crew

Here are a couple of our team members, it takes a village to make a wine so there are plenty more in the bunch that are not shown here. We are a tight knit crew who are all driven to produce excellence and have a few glasses of wine and a long lunch along the way.


Jo has been making wine with McPherson Wines for coming up to 20 years. She believes in the beauty of balance, both in life and in wine, which shines through in her elegant wines that we love to drink. #jonash

🥳 We are super excited to get our hands on “Don't Tell Gary.” This Australian Shiraz Wine 14.5% ABV will be available in store and online very soon. That’s if the team don’t buy it all 😉. This Red Wine is a beautiful dark colour with black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice on the nose.  Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are beautifully integrated with blackberry fruits and medium bodied silky tannins.  In 2014, winemaker Jo Nash discovered an exceptional parcel of Shiraz from the Grampians which she gently crushed, then tucked away in some ridiculously expensive French oak barrels and aged for 12 months. Needless to say, McPherson’s accountant, Gary, didn’t know about Jo’s secret stash.  The Wine speaks for itself - minimal intervention, purity of fruit, Shiraz at its best.  #redwine #shiraz #wine #donttellgary #fruit #red #aged #australianshiraz #oak #aged #mcpherson #accountant #gary #frenchoak
Our amazing winery crew are heading off for a well earned break. They’ll be back next year going headlong in to V22. You couldn’t wish for a better bunch of people. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Cannot tell you how thrilled we are to have made @kara_irving ‘s good bunch of wines. As an independent winery you won’t find us in the chains so we’re often cruising along in the background.
