Simon de Pass

With over four years at Langton’s winery direct, a WSET Level 3 certificate, and a love of the places, people and stories of wine, Rebecca is keen to share her knowledge and take you on an oenological journey. Buckle up!

Favourite wine? Rhys Jones doesn’t discriminate, but if a gun was held to his head, he’d pick Chardonnay and Bordeaux with a bit of age. He’s worked in wine for nine years, with a particular interest in all things Italian.
Working in wine since 2006, Mike Kerr likes good wine from anywhere in the world (but has a special interest in Chablis). He nominates high end burgundies as wines he wants to get to know better.

A Burgundy regular, our resident Greek-speaker isn’t married to the idea of Pinot alone. He chooses wine seasonally - cooler months demand a Yarra Valley Cab, warmer temperatures are for lighter Pinots.
