Christine is chief winemaker, involved in all stages of winemaking, and manages the business. One of only three Scottish women winemakers in the world (it not being a common career aspiration where or when she grew up!), Christine 'fell' into the wine industry after a happenstance visit to Gladstone Vineyard with David one spring weekend in 1995.Christine previously worked in the computer industry in business analysis and project management, and was also involved in social research and agriculture industry research. She has an MBA from Massey University and farming experience from involvement in a goat, sheep and beef farm at Hunterville. Gladstone Vineyard was the opportunity to run her own business, bring together the rural life with business, and apply her scientific bent from way back!
