Ralph and Lesley Zuccaro, who have a successful optical dispensing business, decided to plant a vineyard in 1999 to pinot noir (0.82ha), cabernet sauvignon (0.62ha) and merlot (0.2ha). Son Aaron, a biochemist, grew restless in the confines of a laboratory, and started his winemaking career in 2007, graduating in '12 from CSU. During his time at CSU he worked at Chandon Australia. The small size of the property means that all the work is carried out by the family.
