ABOUT THE WINEMAKER, ALEX RETIEF
Alex fell into winemaking in the mid 1990’s whilst visiting his parent in the Uni summer break who had decided to plant grapes on their 250 hectare property.
He studied Wine Science at Charles Sturt University and then became a trainee at University Vineyard under Greg Gallagher
Alex worked on vintages in the Hunter Valley (NSW), Sonoma Valley (California) and Languedoc between 2002-2005 before being appointed as a winemaker at Chateau de Lagarde in Bordeaux in 2005 where he stayed for 2 years.
Returning to Australia, Alex created the A. Retief label in 2008 and drew on his favourite regions of NSW to create his wines.”
