Michelle is our Cellar Door and Cellar Club Manager...and yes she is our winemaker's wife. Or should that be...our winemaker Wayne is Michelle's husband? Either way they are a great team, committed to both Katnook and the local community.
Michelle began working with Katnook in 1994, while teaching at the local primary school in nearby Penola. Slowly, she was lured her out of the classroom and into our Cellar Door full time. For two years, she was president of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association and remains very proactive in all regional events.
Michelle describes her role as... "First and foremost to welcome visitors to Katnook Estate and introduce them to our wines. I oversee wine sales and our Cellar Club, visitor programs and the day to day running of Cellar Door - making sure we warmly welcome visitors to Coonawarra 7 days a week." And this she does so very well.
