Winemaker - Paul Burnett
Paul Burnett is a South Australian local, completing his Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology) at the University of Adelaide.
Paul has travelled extensively throughout the Californian wine regions and gained valuable experience with Blackstone winery in the USA, specialising in small scale premium winemaking. He spent three months working in vineyards in the town of Castelfiorentino in Tuscany, Italy and fell in love with flavoursome Italian red varietals such as Montepulciano and Sangiovese.
Since 2004, Paul has been making wine from his base in the Riverland, South Australia. Paul has a strong passion for the South Australian Riverland region which he believes is at the forefront of innovation and research across viticulture and winemaking.
