jane ferrariMeet Yalumba Winemaker, Jane Ferrari 

About Jane: The job title of Winemaker & Communications scarcely gives an
indication of the scope of her role. Her work encompasses public relations and wine education, but she is does not come from that sometimes PR fluffy, corporate mould. She’s jeans, boots and a laid back straight talker with an expansive personality. When she preaches the Yalumba gospel, you realize that she’s doing it because she’s passionate about the place. Join us this Thursday and taste through several Yalumba selections while meeting with this natural born story-teller who happens to be a winemaker!
