When a customer looks at a bottle of Linden Estate wine they see a well-presented bottle with a smart label that stands up to most wines on the market any day of the week. When I look at a bottle of Linden Estate wine I see something completely different, I see all the hard work that went into making that wine; I see the vines at various stages of growth; I see all the energy and emotion spent in order to achieve that final product.My name is Trevor Shepherd. I am the winemaker at Linden Estate. I started work here 10 years ago and I made the wine and tended to the vines as well. However after working in the vineyard for some time I began to form a relationship with the vines and the terrior. I began to understand what was influencing them and what was required to promote healthy and quality grape growth. The amazing thing is that every time I made an adjustment in the vineyard I could see a direct result in the finished product in bottle…This was addictive. I then became obsessed with fine tuning every block on site trying to grow the best possible fruit I could. I have the rare opportunity here to grow the fruit and follow this fruit through to bottle .
