Michelle is a former Yank who herself has a few Uni degrees, and has now proudly made these golden soils her own. A classic tale of wine romance unfurled when, backpacking through Italy, all young and sprightly-like, she happened upon a culture of people living amongst the vineyards, living life in the present, working hard and playing hard. She had a eureka moment and made it her mission to seek out a career all-things wine whilst simultaneously giving her mother a nervous breakdown. After studying Enology/Viticulture and working harvests in California, Washington State, Australia and Italy Linnaea Vineyards evolved and was brought to the great shores of this grand country. Michelle likes to dance and wine and dine especially with irreverent people who share her love of unapologetic, unabashed laughter and good times (and a detest of clowns).
