2023: Year in Review

We…extra sadly…bid adieu to Hillary Yount, our phenomenal Vineyard Manager for the past 8 years. As you know, she’s been instrumental in farming our organic vineyards and ensuring that her husband, Anthony, has the best fruit our estate has to offer for crafting our wonderful Sixmilebridge wines.

Hillary is looking forward to spending more quality time with their two daughters and perhaps get back into doing some vineyard related work down the road. We thank Hillary for all of her incomparable contributions to Sixmilebridge in its formative years and beyond.

Jamie joined the team as our new Tasting Room Manager. I am sure that if you’ve visited recently you have had the chance to meet Jamie. For those of you who have not, I hope you get to meet her at your next tasting. Jamie came to us from Turley Wine Cellars and has quite a résumé of winery experience. We are so excited to add her world-class hospitality to the Sixmilebridge experience.

We also hired Lindsay as our Assistant Winemaker to work alongside Anthony in making our 2023 vintage. And for the first time, we had a family member making wine; our son Kyle worked with Lindsay for the 2023 harvest. Along with Kyle, we welcomed our first ever harvest intern Chas. All three were instrumental in making our inaugural year in the production facility a great success.

Before you get too concerned…Chris and Rosie are still around, who else is going to keep me in line!?
