Paul Henry



A love for words, language and conversation do not make wine an obvious career choice, but a two year ‘distraction’ at Juveniles and Willi’s in Paris, and an unconventional apprenticeship as a van driver/kitchen porter/waiter, struck a life course that has seldom strayed from great wine and food enterprises, and the people that run them.

Without doubt, a chance opportunity to travel to Australia – for a then fledgling Australian Wine Bureau – began a relationship with a country that now dominates my guiding passion: the people, places and stories of Australian wine, and developing strategies that further their reach and appreciation.
