Meeting Point


Paul Georgiadis

Paul Georgiadis

Paul’s viticultural career started in the Riverland, where his family established vineyards and orchards, which he managed while studying Marketing at the University of South Australia.

Paul then went on to become Penfolds’ very own premium regions Grower Relations Manager, an illustrious career of 18 years.

He has spent the last 10 years managing his two Barossa Valley vineyards, while consulting in various capacities. This has extended from viticulture to Grape Supply management, which over the years has been received by like-minded vignerons and wineries throughout Australia’s premium wine growing districts, and for this he has been recognised as one of the best in his field.

Paul has leveraged his vast industry experience and has built relationships with winemakers, growers and connoisseurs throughout Australia and abroad.

Jason Barrette

Jason Barrette

Jason’s decade long affair with premium Barossa fruit naturally led him to Marananga, his favourite region and the home of Paulmara Estate.

Jason refined his mastery of the intricacies of this region, by working closely with Paul on unlocking the real potential of the Georgiadis Estate.

His oenological decisions are driven by a deep understanding of the geology and the varieties that suit this unique microclimate.
