Dudley Brown and Irina Santiago-Brown are mid-life converts to winegrowing and winemaking. After leaving overseas careers in high tech and government to move to Australia and “be the change,”  we are fanatical about our vines and wines.  

Irina earned a Masters and PhD in Sustainability in Viticulture at the University of Adelaide. Dudley is also involved in numerous industry and local initiatives, blogs at TheWineRules and helps out at DJ's Grower Services.

Irina provides consulting services regarding sustainability systems (regional, group or individual) and certifications, including biodynamic, organic, sustainable and ISO14001 . She can be contacted at
