Mac first donned overalls in the South West of France at the age of eighteen and it was that summer that was the catalyst for a now 20 year-long career, which has seen Mac work with some of the most respected names in the business, both in Australia and overseas.
Around 15 years ago, Mac was determined to explore the Yarra Valley in new and innovative ways. He wanted to push the boundaries, to walk the fine line of exploration in order to understand the sites, the soils, the sub regions and seasons that make the Yarra Valley unique. And it’s a zeal for experimentation that drives him to this day.
Mac has built his reputation on fine-boned, ethereal wines that eloquently express the differences across the sub-regions of the Yarra Valley. On 13th September, it is a pleasure to welcome Mac to the Club who will guide Members through a Masterclass of his superb wines, and share his fascinating story.
