My name is Jono Hersey and I grow, make and import wine.
I live on our family vineyard in Kuitpo located at the southern tip of the beautiful Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
I pride myself on producing French-inspired wines with freshness and structure.
My passion is the wines of France, in particular the wines of Burgundy.
My love for fine wine began early in life, when I would gather with close friends and we would find ourselves sneaking through our fathers’ cellars, reading labels through the dust, discovering new regions, varieties and producers.
We would ‘borrow’ a few bottles for research purposes, savouring each sip and discussing the flavours and sensations we experienced.
The bottles that made the most impact were the Premier Cru Domaine Leflaive wines from the mid 1990’s, a very special selection that will always mean the most to me. Inspired by these escapades, I changed careers and delved into the wine industry.
Since then I have held positions within vineyards, wineries and numerous fine wine stores. I’ve worked as a publican in a wine focused hotel, as a Sommelier, as a wholesaler and, most recently, launching my own label, Hersey Vineyard.
