When Kate McIntyre was 10 years old her parents established Moorooduc Estate on the Mornington Peninsula, which is not only one of the first commercial producers but considered one of the best. With only a casual interest in wine herself, it was culture and language that enticed her to travel overseas when she was younger. Upon her return she gained employment in the wine industry in a retail position, taking the opportunity to learn. She soon combined her burgeoning interest in wine with her love of Europe, working for a number of years for top Italian wine importer Trembath & Taylor. Eventually she was motivated to return home to join the family business, while concurrently studying to become a Master of Wine. She joined me on this episode to talk about her journey and how Moorooduc Estate is today.

I’ve followed Jo Marsh and her Billy Button Wines for some time, mostly as they are focused on my beloved Italian grape varieties. After finally meeting Jo at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show late last year, I was thrilled to finally be able to open some bottles here on the IntrepidWino YouTube channel. I looked at three white wines made from varieties that originate from different parts of Italy. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
