An avid cyclist for over 30 years, Glenn has pedaled across America and Europe, and completed numerous regional tours. He traveled extensively for two decades as a commercial and fine art photographer – which allowed him to visit and cycle the great wine countries of the world. Before photography, Glenn was in restaurant management for 10 years, and he has also enjoyed several stints judging international wine competitions.
Juliane has been a certified wine professional for over 20 years, working for various Napa and Sonoma wineries, as well as international wine distributors in the USA and New Zealand.

“My love affair with with wine began when I lived in Dijon – the capitol of Burgundy, France.
It’s always been my dream to recreate that connection in a new wine growing region – as
Glenn and I have done here in Nelson.”
