Our Team

Our dedicated team works tirelessly to produce boutique wines and premium table grapes for your enjoyment! 

It takes many cogs in the wheel of success to run a business like Riversands! Fortunately we have had many great staff in our employment over many years to develop and operate our business.

We depend heavily on our loyal permanent staff such as Trevor and Gail along with many casual staff. Our casual staff mostly originate from Tonga or come as backpackers from various countries around the world. At picking time it is like the United Nations with up to 50 staff either picking or running the packing shed!

Two of our boys Lox & Jock and their cousins and friends have also been an integral part of operations during their school & uni holidays. Or you may see them selling wine at shows and festivals!
