Bryn Richards, Winemaker

Bryn joined the Chapel Hill team in 2006 bringing a wealth of diverse experience to the blending bench. Kiwi born, English bred and now a true blue Aussie, he has worked vintages in many different regions around the world. Working with Michael Fragos during the 1999 vintage at Tatachilla Winery he was smitten by the wines and lifestyle of McLaren.

An advocate of ‘Passive Winemaking’, an approach he believes delivers wines with great balance and drinkability. It also allows more free time for cooking, drinking great wines, hanging at the beach with the kids and riding his bike… Fast!
