Shane Harris

Winemaker & Brand Ambassador

Shane Harris has been involved in the Wines by Geoff Hardy winemaking since 2006 and was appointed Senior Winemaker in 2009.

Before entering the wine industry, Shane was a chef by trade and still uses these skills to complement his winemaking philosophy and make food-friendly wines.

In 2012, Shane was named Australian Winemaker of the Year by Australia’s leading wine industry publication, Winestate Magazine. In 2012 and 2014, Wines by Geoff Hardy was also named Winestate Magazine’s Australian Wine Company of the Year, an award based on individual wine scores throughout the year. Shane also played an important role in earning the company’s five red star rating in James Halliday’s Wine Companion, a top rating only awarded to 10% of Australian wineries.

Shane relies on the vines to translate the unique message of the vineyard into something tangible and sees his role as "not losing the message between picking the grapes and opening the bottle".
