OUR GUIDING LIGHT - EDDYSTONE POINT WINEMAKER
Stewart spent the following two years travelling, working and tasting his way around the worlds' wine regions, and upon returning to Australia, undertook two degrees simultaneously, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Oenology and Viticulture, and a Bachelor of Science in Wine Agribusiness from Curtin University in Western Australia. During Stewart’s time at Curtin University, he received the Leeuwin-Talijancich Award, awarded to the Dux of the Curtin University Program.
Stewart gained valuable cellar experience working for two years at Stella Bella Wines in Margaret River, particularly working with Chardonnay. He then completed vintages in the Swan Valley (Houghton Wines), Oregon (Elk Cove) and Tasmania (Bay of Fires Wines), before joining Josef Chromy Wines in 2011 as Winemaker. After seven years at Josef Chromy, Stewart returned to Bay of Fires in 2018 where his obsession with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir continues.
During this time, Stewart was also active in wine-show judging and appeared in multiple wine-shows for the Royal Hobart Wine Show, the Tasmanian Wine Show as well as the Cowra Wine Show and Single Vineyard Wine Show.
Outside of work, Stewart enjoys spending time with his wife and three children in sunny Tasmania.
