Director of Winemaking

Zachary Brown

Zac is an experienced winemaker whose roots in winemaking started nearly 20 years ago while working with a small family winery & vineyard 80 km from Vienna. Following his stay in Europe, his skills were further honed while he lived in Western Australia. After he and Julie married and moved to Montreal, his interest in winemaking grew into a serious passion. As he cultivated his own skills and began winning both provincial and national medals for his wines, he also found himself teaching winemaking to others for the next ten years.

Life just wouldn't be the same without our amazing nephew, Nick!


Julie Powell

Julie spent 20 years working in Human Resources in Canada and abroad for global, multi-national organisations.  Her specialisation in leadership and learning and development gave her keen insight into people, their motivation and how to work effectively and collaboratively together.  These skills are already proving useful as she builds relationships with customers, suppliers and seasonal vineyard employees, who are all key to the success of the grape-growing and winemaking processes.  She has been supporting Zac with home winemaking for a decade and she plans to embark upon more formal studies in viticulture and winemaking to complement the hands-on exposure she has had to date.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.
