"I got a real kick out of the hands-on nature of winemaking from the beginning. Now being back in a hands-on role wearing multiple hats, it has been fun but equally as challenging, I am certainly a lot fitter as well.
...what keeps me going? A quote from my mentor Don Young “You are only as good as your next wine”

@johnduvalwines has done the incredible (and we're not just talking about the wines...)
Somehow they managed to get Chef Pete Clarke from @vintnersbarossa to share the recipe for their much-loved Scotch fillet with Shoyu dressing... If you've ever dined at Vintners you will remember this one.
Paired with a 2010 Plexus SGM we're talking some seriously good food & wine times.
Get the (surprisingly easy) recipe #linkinbio

"I decided to pick up my life and move to San Francisco. I had nowhere to stay, no family to show me around and no real plan. What I did have was an interview at Tartine. It’s definitely the furthest I’ve travelled for an interview. I arrived and they had already filled the spot but I continued to work there for free until one day a baker mentioned a different bakery looking for someone. I gave it a try and turned out this bakery, MH Bread and Butter, was more my scene.
...it didn’t take me long to work it out, turns out I’m pretty good with bread. Early on in this gig, I realised bread was my thing."
Sarah Voigt @breakingbread.bakery on her path to making some of *the* best bread you'll ever taste,
Join Sarah (and her bread) for lunch as she forms part of the Masters Apprentices team on Sunday 2 May.

"And most of all, being able to work with Steingarten Riesling, which was the first 6-pack of wine I ever bought (at age 19) It was one of my favourite wines then and still is today.
This was one of the wines that sparked my interest in all things wine and was the springboard for giving winemaking a go."
- Tim Pelquest-Hunt on what success looks like for him, as a winemaker at Pernod-Ricard Winemakers...
