Team Ghost Rock
The successful operation of Ghost Rock relies on the hard work and dedication of all our casual staff members both in cellar door and out in the vineyard.
Angela Smith has been with us since our inception and works tirelessly in the vineyard over the growing season. She can be found out in the vineyard in the dead of winter, pruning in some of the coldest, wildest weather you can imagine!
Lou Cochrane joined us this year and has been working in the vineyard under the careful guidance of Angela as is now working inside the cellar door as well.
Geoff Mackenzie and Izaak Perkins have also been working in the vineyard, whilst inside at Cellar Door our crew of Bec Rapley, Gail Sifford, and Ella Coates have been keeping the customers satisfied!
