DOG TRAP VINEYARD
is a specialist producer of premium quality dry red table wines made from Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown near Yass, NSW. It was purchased by the present owners, Dr Dennis Hart and Ms Julian White, in 2003 and is a small, locally focussed business. Dennis, who has been a red wine enthusiast for all of his adult life, graduated with Distinction from Charles Sturt University in 1996 with a BAppSc(Wine Sci) and, after two previous careers as a naval officer and university academic, is now vineyard manager, winemaker and labourer. Julian, who has worked in project management, the film industry, CSIRO and education among other areas, and collected two Master degrees along the way, keeps every other aspect of the operation running smoothly.
