Wine regions worked in: McLaren Vale and Kaiserstuhl in Germany.

Favourite wine region: McLaren Vale has it all. Amazing wine, great people, untouched beaches and can still easily sneak into the city. 

Favourite grape variety: I can't pass up a McLaren Grenache.

Favourite food: Love fresh fish and salad, but for something quick and easy a good grilled cheese sanga!

Worst colleague to room with: Have to say Joffa. Only because he doesn't leave any room in the fridge for beer with all the sparkling water he needs!

Family: Antje/the German, my beautiful and patient wife; and our three gorgeous girls Matilda (7), Henrietta (5), and Freya (3).

Pets: Still lucky to have my best mate Digger, our 11 year  old kelpie running around  with us!

Favourite sporting team: I'm a sport tragic and would watch two flies going up a wall, but I never miss the Crows run around
