Its Origins

Kate came to New Zealand after graduating from Roseworthy Agricultural College, South Australia in 1983. Her first job was with Vidal, part of the Villa Maria Group, where she learnt all the ropes of winemaking and fell in love with New Zealand cool climate wines. In 1991 she joined Pask Winery as Head Winemaker. During her acclaimed 26-year tenure, Kate became joint owner and Managing Director, before leaving to launch Radburnd Cellars in 2017.
