Meet the crew
Operations Manager / Chief Winemaker
Our RedHeads Chief Winemaker and Operations Manager, the man with the grape liberating plan; taking us to daring new heights.
Alex is from a family of grape growers where the cool climate of his home region – up in the Strathbogie Ranges – was perfect for their premium Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. With grape growing and winemaking firmly in his mind, he couldn’t help but take on a degree in winemaking from Charles Sturt University (BAppSc).
Alex has gained experience around the world in Napa Valley, Jura and across Australia in the Hunter Valley, Margaret River, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. With all of that tucked under his belt, Alex has settled into the Barossa, to setting up our new 500 tonne sustainable winery in Angaston and works tirelessly to give every grape the attention it deserves to develop our wines with character and personality. He leads a small team of Winemakers and Cellar Hands, works closely with our valued growers, oversees our vineyards and most importantly seeks out even more fruit to liberate from the big guys.
