We are like family here at Harris River Estate (some of us actually are) and we invite you to join us and enjoy the relaxing surrounds and the many tastes, sights and sounds of this beautiful Estate.
Stop by for a visit during Cellar Door opening hours, or contact us to arrange another time or your next function.
We look forward to meeting you at Harris River Estate.
Managing Director Harris River Estate
Karl is a construction manager by day and business development manager for HRE by night!
Having designed and constructed the majority of HRE assets with help from family and friends, Karl is at his happiest with his overalls on, fixing or building something. Having worked internationally in Oil & Gas, Karl brings his construction, project management and business skills back home to HRE.
Tassie is our Head of Security, looking cute and having her belly tickled are her main roles. She believe that all our guest come to the winery / cellar door to visit her and we only produce wine and food to keep folks busy in between Tassie patting sessions!
Its a hard life being a winery dog :)
General Manager of Harris River Estate and Principal Consultant HRE Consulting
Julie is a professional coach & facilitator.
Having worked worldwide in Oil & Gas for many years she brings an international flavour to the Estate (& a Scottish accent)! As general Manager she has been instrumental in the strategic growth of HRE over recent years. She delivers her programs in our purpose built conference centre at the Estate. Her self designed Explorer Leadership programs offer a range of leadership and self development programs that support & navigate individuals, teams, organisations and communities through their journey of learning & exploration.
Julie is also excited about being able to "pay it forward' through her work as Co-Founder of the MILA Foundation program (Aboriginal Youth program) and her self-founded 'Tickle-Me-Pink' movement (women showing self appreciation, appreciating others & paying it forward).
Senior Wine Maker
Previously a Senior Wine Maker for South Corp, Jane has produced a number of our award winning wines - including Gold Medals at the Qantas Wine Show for our Chardonnay and Verdehlo and the great accolade of a 5 Star Rating from James Halliday.
Having worked internationally as a Winemaker, Jane is now settled on her farm in Preston Valley from which she often treats us to some of her home grown produce. Allegedly she also makes a mean Port filled blue Cheese - yum...
Jane is constantly creating and innovating which makes her a 5 star in our eyes!
