Our Winemaker

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