Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Chris had a passion for wine from a very young age, cultivating neighbour’s vines to make his first wines. After a few years working as a cellar hand, Chris travelled to South Australia where he studied oenology at the famed Roseworthy campus. After periods of working in California and Europe, Chris found his way back to South Australia and in the late eighties took a position with Robert O’Callaghan at Rockford wines in the Barossa. It was here Chris developed his unique style and produced his now world famous Shiraz, under his own name (formerly Three Rivers Shiraz). After 15 years at Rockford, Chris travelled back to Europe and developed a number of projects with local producers in Spain.
More recently, Chris has developed Nebbiolo and Carigan projects such as ‘Solita’ and since 2006 has developed a northern Barossa Shiraz project with renowned Ebenezer vigneron Adrian Hoffmann.
