Dr. Wes Pearson is one of those uber cool over acheivers who obviously can't sit still and needs constant mental and vinous stimulation. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Wes’s career in wine began in 1992 when he spent the winter season snowboarding in the town of Whistler, BC. In order to keep his days free to ride, he found a job at a local steakhouse, thus igniting a love of food and wine.

Thirteen years later, having worked in most of Whistler’s top restaurants, he enrolled in the University of British Columbia’s new wine biochemistry program. After moving to McLaren Vale where he could see the potential for making great wines in 2011 he accepted a position with the Australian Wine Research Institute, where he still works as a Senior Sensory Scientist.

Wes is an accomplished wine show judge, an alumnus of the prestigious Len Evans Tutorial, a graduate of Wine Australia’s Future Leaders program, and has completed a PhD at Charles Sturt University. Wes lives in Willunga with his partner Cassie and their 5 kids. He loves to ride boards (skate, surf and snow), is an accomplished ice hockey player and welcomes any opportunity to hustle you on the golf course.

When Wes showed us his wines, we were blown away. Impressed by his whole collection, we are proud to have his wines on our shelf.
