Featuring Guest Speaker – Mr Stuart Blackwell, Senior Winemaker St Hallett

Stuart Blackwell’s winemaking career spans more than four decades, two continents and four regions. The consistency, reliability and diversity of the Barossa’s grapes and the availability of old vine fruit lured him to stay in the world-famous region.

Following a stint in McLaren Vale, Stuart first joined St Hallett in 1972 and has fulfilled many roles at the winery including General Manager, Chief Winemaker and Head Greenkeeper. During this time he has overseen a shift to table wine and has established St Hallett as one of the Barossa’s most iconic producers of Shiraz and Riesling.

Stuart’s wines have received many accolades in domestic and international wine shows throughout his career and he was recognised as ‘Barossa Winemaker of the year’ by his peers in 2003 and became a Baron of the Barossa in the same year.
