Born 1980, 1981 & 1982 respectively
Bruce and Pauline Tyrrell's three children Jane, John and Christopher, have grown up around the Tyrrell's winery just as their father and grandfather did. From childhood days earning pocket money working in the business, all three are now instrumental in directing Tyrrell's as a modern Australian wine company, while maintaining the integrity of continued family ownership.
Christopher Tyrrell, the youngest of the three children, began in sales and marketing, but the lure of the winery caught up with him. His hands can be seen in Tyrrell's wines made since 2005, when he officially joined the team as assistant winemaker. Chris was awarded the Riedel Rising Star of the Year award in 2012 for his outstanding contribution to the Hunter Valley wine industry.
Jane Tyrrell officially joined the business in 2001, working as personal assistant to the sales manager. Jane then joined the NSW Sales team where she worked her way through the ranks to build solid relationships with a new generation of wine buyers and and now looks after the key On Premise accounts for NSW.
John Tyrrell also works in the winery in a role his father, Bruce, refers to as Minister for Morale. "John keeps things in line for the winemaking team and ensures crew members always have a smile on their faces."
