Jane Ryan


In her own words, Jane is a “born and raised Barossa girl” who’s equally happy with a night in, cooking for friends or out at the cricket or football … as long as a few sneaky vinos are involved! She loves sport, although doesn’t get to play as much now as she would like, but she’s still actively involved in umpiring the local netball association. It’s this firm hand that’s going to help keep the RedHeads team in line!

Jane has been in the wine industry since she finished school and hasn’t looked back as she was lucky enough to find what she loved early in her career. She started out with casual cellar door work for a few years before moving into the production team for many years. Following that, she switched focus to winemaking support where she enjoyed a diverse role offering admin support to the winemaking and production teams. It’s been a fun and varied path she’s managed to do everything from cellar door work to lab assistant, cellar hand to logistics management and bottling line operation to production scheduling… to top it all off, she’s even started a winemaking degree!
