The Winemaker


Dale Bradshaw  and Sooze Bosire

Owners Dale and Sooze  established the vineyard on their property as their ‘retirement plan' and their love of wine. While living in Sydney they spent Monday nights 2 years driving to Turri TAFE  to  study viticulture and 1st year winemaking in order to be well grounded in this endeavor.

Dale's two daughters, Sarah & Bri along with Boyfriend Josh Beach also work vintage and helping at farmer’s markets.
