Meet the Bethany Wines Cellar Door team

Our cellar door might be shut because of COVID-19. But our Bethany Wines cellar door team are still here working behind the scenes to welcome you back soon.

You might know a little about our family and our wine making team. But we thought you should know a bit about the amazing team that welcome our guests to cellar door.

Kim, David and Jo are the face of Bethany Wines. They’re the smiling faces that greet you at cellar door. They love our wines as much as we do, and they love sharing the stories behind those wines.                     

They’re a wealth of knowledge, not just about the Bethany Wines story, but about the Barossa.

And there’s no doubt they’re missing pouring our wines and telling our story, just as we are.

So until you can visit us, here’s an introduction from each of our Bethany Wines cellar door team.

Kim

My favourite memory at Bethany would have to be from before I worked here. And it’s the reason I work here.

I was on a tour and we tasted the first vintage ofLE Shiraz, the 2006. It was nothing like I’d ever experienced in a Barossa Shiraz and everything I never knew I loved.

Soon after, I saw an ad for a Cellar Door position. And here I am, just over 9 years later and loving being part of this family company.

My favourite wine is Riesling, all styles and regions. I especially love mouth-watering, super acidic, citrus, minerally, dry styles from the Eden and Clare Valleys. But watch out for Mt Gambier Riesling. And anything from 2011 has my hands twitching to get hold of it.

I’m a country girl at heart. I love big open spaces and watching the dark sky light up with stars. My most treasured moments are spending time with my family, especially our biannual trip to the NT. I love spending time with my dad and the rest of the family.

I love camping with my boys for fun. But mostly we go camping when I’m competing in target shooting. This is a lifelong passion of mine and over the years, I’ve travelled in Australia and internationally to compete.

I also love cooking, especially when it’s someone’s birthday at work.

Jo

I love the ‘a-ha’ moment people have when they try a wine for the first time. I love doing tastings and analyzing the different wines and seeing what other people taste in wine. Whether they’re learning about wine or know a lot, I like helping people find new wines they enjoy.

On my weekends off, I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy camping at the river, going to the beach or visiting wineries. I enjoy making different food to enjoy with friends and a big glass of wine. I love anything a little alternative, like Durif.

I’m a Port Adelaide fan through and through and looking forward to the AFL getting started again.
