Chief Winemaker - McGuigans Wines
Started in the wine industry in 1979 at Vidals in Hawkes Bay NZ
Moved to Australia in 1981 and took on a winemaking role at Rothbury.
Rothbury listed on stock exchange in 1992 where we acquired Saltrams, Baileys, St Huberts and Farnham Estate in Marlborough and became Group Winekmaker and Production Manager.
In 1996 the Rothbury Group was taken over by Treasury and I relocated to the small start up business Brian McGuigan Wines. Took the helm of winemaking and production and then managed to step back into a more or less strictly winemaking role in 2004 (stepped out of the vortex to have a life)
Currently still at McGuigans as Chief Winemaker.
