Michael has spent over 15 years in the wine industry and his passion for wine has taken him across the world. After completing his degree in Oenology (Winemaking) at the University of Adelaide he spent the next 10 years doing vintages around the world including as a flying winemaker for Esporao, one of Portugal’s best producers. He has also done vintages in the Napa Valley in the U.S, the Yarra Valley, Nagambie and Mudgee as well as spending time researching Shiraz in the Rhone Valley in France. After working in many regions, Michael set his sights on Heathcote to start his own project. The soil quality, intricate and unique balance of climate and temperature conditions and the incredible fruit that results from these conditions made Heathcote the region of choice. He was lucky enough to find the vineyard he was looking for in 2017 and the winery was quickly put together just in time for the 2018 vintage.
