We have a special Wine Maker Tasting Event this Thursday the 18th of August when we have Dr Dianne Miller, chief winemaker from Bellarmine in Pemberton, in-store to take you through her new vintages.
Dr Diane Miller has been making wine for Bellarmine since the first vintage in 2004. Di started her working life as a vet in the U.K. and Australia. During that time Di pursued her interest in wine, planning her holidays around visiting the wine regions of Europe, including Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and the Rhone Valley in France, and Ribera Del Duero, Rioja, Jerez, and Madrid in Spain. Eventually Di decided to take the leap into a new career as a winemaker and completed a degree in oenology. After working at wineries in Oregon (USA) and Margaret River, Di took on the position of head winemaker at Porongorup Winery in the Great Southern, where she made wines for more than 20 clients, including Bellarmine Wines.
After taking on the management of Bellarmine Wines in 2008, Di travelled through Germany with Bellarmine owners Willi and Gudrun Schumacher to further her knowledge of wine, particularly German Riesling. Di's winemaking abilities have seen Bellarmine Wines included in James Halliday's Top 100 Wineries. Di is also studying for her Master of Wine degree and manages to combine her busy work life with raising her children in the beautiful south west of Australia.
We invite you to come and meet Di and try the exceptional offerings from Bellarmine from 4.00pm until 7.00pm this Thursday in store at Old Bridge Cellars, 221 Queen Victoria St, North Fremantle.
