Brooke Blair

Winemaker

After graduating from the University of Adelaide with a degree in Oenology, Brooke spent three vintages working at Hollick Wines in Coonawarra. She then travelled to Spain and enjoyed her first vintage in the Northern Hemisphere, however, it was Canada that captured Brooke’s heart for the next 11 years. After more than a decade of winemaking in Canada, Brooke then decided it was time to return to Australian soil. She is thrilled to be a part of such an esteemed winemaking team and looks forward to upholding the rich legacy of Peter Lehmann Wines.
