Suzanne Little is one half of the winemaking team for The Little Wine Company and also produces wines under her Talga label.
Suzanne's career in wine started in 1988 at Katnook Estate in Coonawarra. After Katnook Suzanne diverted to other things; travelling overseas, working in the Sydney Futures Exchange and later as a trainee Bonds dealer. Her interest in the money markets led Suzanne back to Canberra to complete a degree in Economics at the Australian National University.
In 1991 Suzanne returned to the wine industry working at Lark Hill in Canberra before moving to the Hunter Valley. Suzanne completed her degree in Wine Science at Charles Sturt University while working at Reynolds and later as a Senior Winemaker at Rosemount Estate.
At Rosemount Estate, Suzanne was ultimately responsible for Rosemount's Reserve wines including Balmoral Shiraz and Roxburgh Chardonnay. Suzanne's passion for Chardonnay was fuelled by spending five years immersed with some of the best Chardonnay fruit available from the Giants Creek, Roxburgh and Orange District vineyards.
In 2000 Suzanne left Rosemount to join forces with her winemaking husband Ian Little. Together they are exploring new varieties such as Viognier, Sangiovese and Vermentino.
Cost: $84pp. Plus taste a selection of wines at your own leisure in Cellar Door for no extra charge.
