The Lightfoot family first planted a small vineyard in 1995 in the pristine Gippsland Lakes region and made small batches of wine each vintage for the enjoyment of family, friends and a handful of local wine enthusiasts. Since then their family business has grown, and the second generation of family, sons Rob and Tom Lightfoot, now manage the business.
The wines are now being made by Alastair Butt and Tom Lightfoot.
Alastair brings more than 25 years of winemaking experience to the winery, working previously in the Yarra Valley and Hunter Valley. After completing a Viticultural Science and Wine Production degree, Tom has worked a number of vintages in wineries throughout Australia and the Northern Hemisphere. Tom now manages the Myrtle Point Vineyard and assists Alastair in winemaking.
