Stuart Pym's Story
I was born in Perth and began my winemaking career in 1983 in the family winery. I had a five year stint making beer with Matilda Bay Brewing Company but returned to winemaking in 1991.
I've had a fair bit of experience!... Starting at Vasse Felix then moving on to Voyager Estate where I spent 8 years. After this I moved to Devil's Lair and finally on to Stella Bella.
My partner and I started both the Suckfizzle and Stella Bella brands. This started as a weekend hobby, then quickly grew to being one of Western Australia's most popular wine brands. It did however further remove me from the actual making of wine.
I am now looking to the future and Naked Wines is a part of that... Thanks to the Angels' support, you've allowed me to get back to what I got in to the industry for - to make wines. Growing grapes and making wine is something I am very passionate about, and something I spend most of my time pursuing.
I'm excited and enthusiastic to be getting back in to the grunt work!
