First female Legend of the Vine has been named
After being involved in Australia’s wine industry for nearly 40 years Kathleen Quealy has been named as the first female Wine Communicators of Australia Legend of the Vine. Quealy started her love of wine working on the bottling line for McWilliams in the late 70s as an after school job. Her parents though, were shocked when Quealy subsequently enrolled at winemaking school in Wagga Wagga. It was there she met life long mentor and Pinot Gris advocate Max Loader. Loader saw the courage and vision in Quealy, and took her under his wing.
