Viticulture & Sustainability
Tony is not only our vineyard expert he is also our sustainability champion, overseeing vineyard trials and partnering with other like-minded experts in the industry to share knowledge. “What I like about my job is that it combines science, love of the land, passion, art and nature. I get to work in New Zealand’s most picturesque regions, helping to produce great wines that can be enjoyed with friends and acquaintances, as well as people around the world.”
Tony completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (with distinction in viticulture) and then embarked on a lifetime career in the wine industry, joining Yealands in 2011. When you can lure him off the vineyards, Tony likes anything to do with the ocean (surfing, boating, sailing, fishing, swimming or snorkelling), tramping in the great outdoors or enjoying cuisine or movies – preferably with family and friends.
