Matt Thomson leaves St Clair after 24 years

Matt Thomson

After 24 years of business co-operation, Matt Thomson and the Kiwi-Oeno consultancy team have concluded their integral role with Saint Clair Family Estate Wines, including Delta Wine Company and Lake Chalice wine brands.

The collaboration has seen innumerable successes over the years, including trophies and prestigious accolades won in notable shows and competitions around the world.

Matt is confident that the success will continue as he leaves the winemaking in good hands from the 8th July 2017.

Matt is looking forward to having more time to focus on the wine brand and business he owns with his wife Sophie (Blank Canvas), as well as the current and future projects with the consultancy team.

Matt and Kiwi-Oeno have been involved with winemaking, production and associated services in eight different countries spanning the globe, and together they have a wealth of collective experience.

They look forward to building further on the 20-year-old partnership with Liberty Wines in the UK in their projects based in Italy, France and Spain.

Matt and Kiwi-Oeno wish Saint Clair and associated companies all the best for the future.
