“I came to Greece from Australia in 1985 after having lived there for most of my life. I married my husband who was from a grape growing family. When my children grew up and went to university I had plenty of time. I didn’t want to sell my grapes to the co-operative and decided that I wanted to make wine.
For me a good wine starts in the vineyard and you have to look after your vines. I farm with a lot of respect for my vineyard and let the vines grow as they want to grow. I just love living in nature and I try and preserve nature so all our vineyards are organic for 15 years. We were one of the first wineries in Neméa that had organic vineyards.”
