I started working in the family business in 1999, after working as an assistant winemaker, bar tender, cellar master and a tennis coach. When Hallam passed away in 2007, I stepped up as principal of the company.

My wife, Debbie, and our four children, Joe, Anna, Thomas and Matthew, enjoy getting out into the natural outdoors of New Zealand by going hunting, fishing, diving and tramping. I also enjoy growing roses and as many veggies as I can.
