Brooke Blair - Lead Winemaker


After graduating from the University of Adelaide with a degree in Oenology, Brooke spent three vintages working at Hollick Wines in Coonawarra. She then travelled to Spain and enjoyed her first vintage in the Northern Hemisphere; however, Canada captured Brooke’s heart for the next 11 years. After more than a decade of winemaking in Canada, Brooke decided it was time to return to Australian soil.

Brooke joined the Peter Lehmann winemaking team in 2017, where alongside her fellow winemaking team, she has been responsible for continuing the exceptional pedigree of winemaking at Peter Lehmann well into the future.

From 2022, she will also lead the winemaking for Brand’s Laira. She’s thrilled to have the opportunity to use her considerable knowledge of the Coonawarra region to uphold the reputation and regional integrity of the Brand’s Laira portfolio.
