Dirt Dynasties: Through phylloxera and war
Mick Morris is a fourth-generation winemaker in north-eastern Victoria’s prominent wine region, Rutherglen. He has grape marc in his blood, and knew the industry inside out when he took over the family business in 1952. Mick was the first in his family to be university educated but started his career from the bottom up. He retired in 1993 at the age of 65, when he handed the reigns over to his eldest son David. Despite retirement, he continues to spend time helping out at the family vineyard, reports ABC Rural.
