Meet the Team
Stumpy Gully Vineyard remains the pride and joy of the Zantvoort family, who settled in Australia in 1980 and planted their first vines at Mooroduc on the Mornington Peninsula in 1989.
With the retirement of Frank and Wendy, the winery and vineyard are now being run by the next generation.
Michael Zantvoort, Owner and Winemaker
Michael grew up among the vines, learning about wine making from his parents, and has done everything on the vineyard from planting to bottling. He’s usually found working around the Stumpy Gully Vineyard or on the road meeting various clients in Melbourne and Sydney. He studied Viticulture and Wine Growing at Wagga and loves camping and spending time with his three girls.
