Michael started his working career as a metallurgist and has worked around Australia and Japan in mining, smelting, steel, cement and engineering fabrication as a senior manager. He was lucky to live in the Barossa Valley for 10-years whilst managing a cement plant that was surrounded by vineyards. In order to learn the lingo of the Barossa, he completed several courses on wine evaluation and red wine making. He then co-founded a Barossa based wine appreciation group that included several prominent winemakers and vignerons along with passionate wine lovers keen to learn more about wine and winemaking.
Adele is a Senior Human Resources Professional and has worked across the energy management & automation, rail, heavy manufacturing and construction materials industries. Adele plays netball for Barossa Districts in the Barossa, Light & Gawler Netball Association and is a regular visitor to the Barossa for netball, work and, of course, her favourite wineries.
Having the association with the Barossa Valley, we are often called on by friends and business colleagues to help them choose good wines. The goal of this website is to make those recommendations to them and to help them to purchase the wines at cellar door prices, or on special.
So here we are, back in South Australia after a three year stint in Gladstone, Queensland, indulging our passion in wines and sharing the love. Our aim is to promote outstanding Barossa wines to our friends, colleagues and other wine lovers, especially those who can't get to the Barossa on a regular basis.
