Newly appointed winemaker, Ryan Puttick, always knew he wanted to farm. It was in High School that he found his calling - winemaking. Exceptionally talented, hard working and ever modest, he's committed and passionate about his job. His favourite part is seeing a fruit being converted into something unique, such as wine, which is enjoyed by thousands of people worldwide.

He enjoys spending time with his wife, Kathryn, and two Jack Russels. He also loves sports, and when not working you will find him playing cricket, golf or running. Ryan gained experience in Champagne, Germany and at a local cellar that will make him a priceless addition to our team.
