Where are you originally from? I was born in New Zealand and then I spent half of my childhood between New Zealand and the Cook Islands. My father’s Niuean, so from a little rock called Niue in the middle of the Pacific Ocean between the Cook Islands and Fiji. How did you come to live […]

MOUNT PLEASANT AND MAURICE O’SHEA – AUSTRALIA’S FIRST GREAT WINEMAKER

Mount Pleasant was established in the Hunter Valley in 1921 by Australia’s first great winemaker, Maurice O’Shea. Australian wine at the time was all about fortifieds (e.g. port, sherry), but Maurice had spent time in France and had seen what table wines could be.
