Alex Phillips was born and raised in South Africa; one of the most vibrant and diverse wine-producing countries in the world. She graduated cum laude from the University of Stellenbosch in 2013, where she was awarded the prestigious Prof PA van der Bijl medal and crowned Best Academic Student: Viticulture and Oenology. After mentoring under celebrated winemaker Adam Mason at Mulderbosch Vineyards, she launched into vintages across the world before finding her feet as assistant winemaker at Billy Button Wines in the Alpine Valleys of North East Victoria. It is here she found love; not only in the picturesque winemaking region itself but in her fiance, Lin. The pair lives on Spring Spur - a beautiful working horse property in the Kiewa Valley where Alex is free to spread her wings and do what she does best - bringing Spring Spur wines to life.
