Clarnette & Ludvigsen
Kym had been involved in the wine industry since the early 1970’s. He had worked in most viticultural areas in a variety of roles.
Kym had gained vast experience in viticulture and wine making over the nearly 40 years of wine industry work in Australia.
He was once quoted as saying “viticulture is my life” and has been teased by his peers ever since.
Leigh started making wine in the Yarra Valley at Miller’s Chateau Yarrinya back in 1984, after graduating from South Australia’s Roseworthy College.
As a Melbourne boy going to the Yarra Valley was a great opportunity. After a three year stint, the lure of Tarrawarra Estate beckoned and Leigh spent four fantastic years making the quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir table wines and sparkling base wines for Domaine Chandon prior to them establishing their own winery in the Yarra Valley.
