Matt is the man responsible for everything at Gibbston Valley. His dedication to wine is most apparent during harvest. He digs out all the fermenters and completes a great deal of the cellar work. He is also in charge of wine sales within the region and maintains the Gibbston Valley facility.
Matt is originally from Flint, Michigan. But, his love and passion for wine has led him to New Zealand. Now, he proudly call himself a kiwi, meaning that he is aware that throwing when bowling at cricket is illegal. He remains calm under any amount of pressure. Aside from work, he is a goalie for the Southern Stampede Ice Hockey team.
Matt is very friendly and the true go-to person when it comes to wine. He looks forward to seeing you soon.
