Shayne is unashamedly 'old world' in approach. His years of experience in Europe have given him a love of European wines with their magnificent structural qualities. For Artisan, he successfully marries this approach with the 'new world' love of clean fruit driven wines. Shayne acts as chief winemaker, overseeing all of our regional winemaking activity. His input ensures a consistency of style and quality through a hands-on approach and attention to detail. Shayne trained at a number of New Zealand wineries before venturing overseas, where he gained extensive experience with the wines of southern France, Spain, Italy and Chile. – Description from Dragac
