Proprietor & Managing Director
Michael came to the wine industry from a construction background after developing his passion over many years attending wine tastings and founded Two Hands Wines in 1999. Michael has a well-known love for all wine and he spends many weeks a year traveling to taste some of the greatest wines from the most revered wine regions of the globe, adding to his personal (and impressive) cellar along the way. From day one, Michael’s role has been multifaceted being involved in the day to day running of Two Hands from vineyard management through to winemaking and production. With a flair for marketing and creativity, Michael is always injecting fresh ideas and constantly nutting out new ways to keep the brand evolving.
As a local boy to the Barossa, Ben not surprisingly developed an interest in wine at a young age. Whilst completing his studies at Adelaide University in Agricultural Science (Oenology) Ben joined Two Hands Wines in 2008 as Cellar Hand. In 2010 he progressed to Assistant Winemaker before being appointed Chief Winemaker in 2013. Internationally, Ben has represented Two Hands working vintages in Niagara, Canada and Napa Valley, USA.
