Meet the Team

Michael Paterson Winery Sales Manager

Having grown up on our family’s vineyard Château Pato just around the corner, I am no stranger to Tyrrell’s and I bring a wealth of experience in the wine industry with me after many years working with the likes of Lindeman’s, Hungerford Hill and Bimbadgen. My favourite Tyrrell’s wine would have to be Vat 47 Chardonnay. I love the diversity of the Australian wine industry, lots of great wine, interesting people and beautiful places to visit.

Scott Richardson Cellar Door Sales

Born and raised in the region, I have worked in the industry on and off for 26 years. I studied at Roseworthy and have worked both locally and overseas, experiencing every facet of wine production, from vineyard to bottling line. However, my career as a winemaker was tragically cut short after I discovered I suffered from an unusual condition that prevented me from spitting wine out. It was then I was forced to move from production to sales. Come and visit me at the cellar door and please, don’t be intimidated by my good looks – remember your money is as good as the next persons!
