Head winemaker Nina was born and raised in a small town on the border of the Alsace wine region in Switzerland. It was her family’s involvement in the local village vineyard in those early days, which paved the way for her future career as a Winemaker.
After relocating to Australia, Nina graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Arts degree at Monash University, followed by a post-graduate degree in Winemaking at the University of Adelaide. She has since worked vintages in McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley, Barolo (Italy), Rhone Valley (France), Alentejo (Portugal), and New Zealand.
She is thrilled to be back making wine in Victoria, where the diversity of varieties, microclimates, and wine styles is a winemakers dream.
Assistant Winemaker, Callie Jemmeson, has grown up with wine in her blood. It was family holidays to Chianti in Italy, and tasting’s at Louis Roederer in France that sparked a serious passion in Callie from a very young age.
Originally qualifying as a chef it was the lure of wine and more so vineyards that she just couldn’t resist. She’s now studying winemaking at Charles Sturt University, and has already worked at some A list wineries, including De Bortoli in the Yarra Valley, Littorai Wines in California and Fattoria Zerbina in Romagna.
