ABOUT TUMBARUMBA AND ON THE FLY
‘On the fly’ describes how our vineyard has evolved since 1988. We raised children and managed full-time jobs in Canberra while we set up and managed our Tumbarumba property, some three hours drive away. Richard studied viticulture at Charles Sturt University and then taught viticulture at Canberra Institute of Technology and other venues for about eight years. A number of years working outside Australia in New Zealand gave us a good perspective of kiwi cool climate winegrowing but presented some logistical challenges for managing the Tumbarumba vineyard.
‘On the fly' also relates to Richard’s passion for fly fishing for wild trout. We are very fortunate to be in close proximity to some great mountain wilderness areas and whenever we can we love to get away camping, bushwalking and most importantly, flyfishing, in this wild and beautiful part of Australia.
With thanks to our partners at Jugiong Wine Cellar.
