winemaking team

A delicate balancing act

The Zilzie winemaking team is committed to using the best vineyard parcels to piece together wines that are consistently great quality.

Using the latest winemaking technology our winemakers delicately process the fruit to retain each varietal’s distinguishing characteristics, to produce wines for your enjoyment.

Along with their vast winemaking experience, each of our winemakers also bring their own unique
expertise to the team.



Candy’s our “barrel girl”. All jokes aside, she manages a very strict barrel regime. Each parcel is treated individually, ensuring maximum oak integration delivering elegant, refined wines, with just a touch of finesse.

We don't subscribe to the old Aussie adage of oak, oak and more oak. We think more along the lines of regionality and style - it's an equal partnership.


He’s the guy who operates all the whiz bang computers, making sure we get the most out of our equipment and monitoring the quality of our wines at all times. It’s all about efficiency and quality assurance for Jono. Jono's many years of experience means he knows how to produce great wines that consumers will love drinking; while keeping them as inexpensive as possible - it’s a delicate balancing act

We have great fruit coming in, the best new equipment and a commitment to quality.
I love that I have the freedom to hunt down the perfect parcels of fruit from Australia's best known wine regions, bring them home, and create great wines.
