Brief info

began my journey in the wine industry at Leonetti Cellar in the summer of 1997, while still in high school, starting as a part-time vineyard worker. This initial experience evolved into a full-time role, where I gradually transitioned to working both in the vineyard and the cellar. It was during this period that my passion for winemaking truly ignited. Through dedication, training and hard work, I earned the position of cellar master and continued to advance, becoming an assistant winemaker. After 24 years of growth and learning, I achieved the role of winemaker at Figgins Family Wine Estates, where I continue to pursue excellence in crafting exceptional wines.
