Meet the Team: Richard

Although many of the Seresin staff members have appeared on the blog before, we thought it was about time to introduce you to them properly. We will be profiling several people in the coming weeks, so watch this space if you've ever wondered who makes things happen behind the scenes on the estate.

We are proud to introduce Richard Gabrielsson as our new Assistant Winemaker. Richard (formerly known as Lars) has already been part of our Seresin family for 5 years. First noticed for his dancing abilities at an Auckland wine show, a chat with Richard showed he was perfect for our vacant Cellar Door role. He was pretty quickly captured by the winemaking team and has spent the last 3 and a half years working in the cellar.

Richard is from Gotland, Sweden (apparently the largest island in the Baltic Sea!) and is a qualified sommelier who also studied literature and Social Anthropology at University. He has a great palate and passion for wine, and his sense of humour is insatiable. Things are always lively around Richard and that brings a great sense of fun to our work place.

We've been lucky enough to see Richard develop into a fine young aspiring winemaker who has great potential, and we are delighted to promote him to this important role.
