Cellar Door Wine Tasting
Chris Scott is a wine tour guide at Church Road. He has professional experience as a vineyard worker and cellar hand and received a degree in Wine Science at EIT Hawke’s Bay in association with Charles Stuart University, Australia. He is currently working as a senior winemaker and ensures the company provides great wine tours.
Chris believes that winemakers must have an artistic sense, scientific knowledge of wine, and craftsmanship. Each of these components is important – artistic sense is required to determine what is to be created, scientific knowledge is essential in the planning of the production process, and craftsmanship is necessary in the application of lessons from tradition and experience. Chris has all of these skills and applies them to improve the winery.
