The Vignerons

Brad and Cheryl Hutchings 

“Vines have been grown at Savina Lane for around 65 years. We are passionate about this lovely little slice of the Granite Belt and strive to achieve good eco-credentials, designing our facilities to avoid the need for air conditioning, spraying only natural compounds wherever possible and using only organic fertilisers” says Brad.

Before coming to Savina Lane, Brad, a qualified Agronomist, spent a long working life as a consultant in horticulture, agri-business, marketing and project development and Cheryl was a writer and Creative Director in the advertising industry – but the couple’s passion has always been the enjoyment of good wine. Brad’s lifetime goal has been to get his hands back into the earth, having started out working on a New Zealand farm when still in his teens.
