My family started Moorooduc Estate when I was 10 years old and after studying language and theatre - and doing some travel - I came back to the wine industry, first through retail, then with an importer wholesaler. I returned to the family business in 2004. I write, teach and talk about wine. I have chaired the Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration in 2013 and 2015. I live on the Mornington Peninsula and am marketing and business development manager of Moorooduc Estate. I help with the winemaking and I travel as often as I can to wine regions I love around Australia and further afield: Champagne, Burgundy, Alsace, Piedmont, Tuscany, Alto Adige...
