I worked in hospitality part-time while at university. After coming to Australia to ‘see about a girl’, I found work in a cool, laneway cafe–where I also discovered a passion for wine.

Since coming to Montalto, I have uncovered an insatiable thirst for knowledge of the world of wine. Last year, I completed Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Advanced qualification (with distinction); and immediately enrolled in the 2 year WSET Diploma Course.

I love working in Montalto Cellar Door because every day is something new. Most everyone that comes in for a tasting shares at least a passing interest in a subject that I could quite literally talk all day about.

‘The girl’ and I’ve been together now for 12 years!
