I have been involved in hospitality for almost 35 years. From owning my own boutique liquor store, working as a barman across Sydney’s many nightspots, to being the Licensee/General Manager of the iconic Observer Hotel in The Rocks. The hours and nights are long, the demands are endless, but I love the hospitality industry and the joy it can bring to all people.
Over this time I have developed an appreciation for wine. From whites of the Margaret River, Coonawarra reds, Barossa Chardonnays and Rieslings and Mudgee Shirazs’, to the endless Italian varieties. I love them all. The opportunity to share my passion for a tasty Borolo from Piedmont, to the savoury delights of a Nebbiolo from our own region with classic Italian food, makes the journey even more special.
Now as I enter a new phase of my hospitality life, in partnership with Trish and with the establishment of Vine & Tap, I want to share my passion for wine with Bathurst. I hope you enjoy what we have created.
