LOCAL winemaker Katherine Brown is in the running for a top 12 spot in the 2018 Young Gun of Wine after being named among the top 50 finalists.
The Brown Brothers fourth-generation winemaker has been in the industry since she was born, being a part of the Brown family, but started full-time work in 2015 with her first vintage.
“I spent some years in Melbourne working in sales and marketing but eventually decided the winemaking direction was for me,” she said.
“I’ve been to France to do vintage and studied by correspondence at Charles Stuart University as well.”
Katherine has now done four vintages and is still enjoying it.
