Our winemaker and partner John Cassegrain is one of Australia’s most highly regarded and dedicated winemakers. John has almost 30 years experience both here and overseas, including 10 years with the renowned Tyrrells winery in the NSW Hunter Valley, as well as numerous vintages in Burgundy and Bordeaux regions.

The son of French migrants to Australia, John Cassegrain enjoys maintaining his strong links to France and has added another through his alliance with Bernard Forey. Together they are pursuing a winemaking approach that has less emphasis on fruit character and more on complexity and an easy drinking style.
John makes our Richfield Vineyard wines at his Cassegrain Winery which John and his wife Eva established just over 20 years ago.
