In 1966 Trefor and Olive Morgan, then Lawson, accompanied Max Lake to his newly planted vineyard at Pokolbin in the Hunter. Max had tutored Trefor in the Medical course at Sydney University. At that time there was a decision that at some time we would own a Vineyard and Winery. Trefor returned to Newcastle his birthplace as Professor of Medicine in 1977, but was so busy that he had no time to put his plan into action. In the mid 1980’s Trefor who was now Professor of Physiology at the University of Melbourne had a decision to make. He would be compulsory retired from the University and Hospital System in 2001 at the age of 65. He had the choice of setting up private practice or something else. Something else won. In 1985 they purchased the property at Riddells Creek with the idea of planting an acre of grapes each year.
