Moores Hill is owned by 2 couples- Julian Allport & Fiona Weller and Tim & Sheena High. Between them, they possess a excellent blend of skills and experience. They all work actively in the business of growing, making and selling wine.
Julian is a winemaker and tends Moores Hill’s vines; Fiona has a marketing background and runs Moores Hill cellar door; Tim has extensive international corporate experience and Sheena is a viticulturist.
A small team work with Fiona & Julian year round in the vineyard and cellar door. At harvest time, we recruit a keen group of locals and travellers to pick the grapes by hand.
Julian is a winemaker and co-owner of Moores Hill Vineyard.
He grew up on the Hawkesbury River in NSW, before obtaining a Bachelor of Science from Macquarie University. Following stints in the outdoor equipment industry and the early days of e-commerce, he started mucking around with grapes in Mudgee.
He decided to get serious about winemaking, studying oenology at the University of Adelaide. Vintages in McLaren Vale and California followed before coming to Tasmania in 2008 for a vintage job at Bay of Fires. Moores Hill happened to be for sale at the time so Julian convinced wife Fiona that moving to Tasmania permanently to run a vineyard would be a good idea.
