Ms Celine Rousseau
Winemaker and Manager

2002 QANTAS Young Winemaker of the Year, Celine Rousseau, has been the company winemaker since 2000. Born in Paris and trained in Bordeaux, her passion for making wine has seen her hone her skills in prestigious Chateaux in Bordeaux, Champagne and Languedoc in France, as well as in wineries of the Western Australian regions of Margaret River and the Perth Hills. This diverse experience and Celine’s own incredibly high standards are reflected in the success of Chalkers Crossing wines at domestic and international exhibitions.

Building on a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Microbiology from the highly regarded Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris, Celine went on to obtain a Master of Oenology and Marketing from the University of Reims in Champagne and the National Diploma of Oenology from the University of Bordeaux.

Celine made Australia her permanent home in 1997. Now happily working with us at Chalkers Crossing we are pleased that world renowned wine experts, including James Halliday, have consistently reviewed our wines positively, praising highly Celine’s terroir based viticulture and winemaking style.

Geoff Davis

In July 2012 we welcomed Geoff Davis to our team. Geoff brings with him a passion for growing excellent quality cool climate wines. He has a firm commitment to doing this in a way that is sustainable and healthy for the environment in which he works.

Geoff has had viticultural experience in Orange, Margaret river, Wagga Wagga and Canberra districts and enjoys the challenge of continuing Chalker's Crossing's high standards of growing quality fruit for quality wines.

Geoff has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Viticulture) from Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, NSW and manages our Rockleigh and Kylmorn vineyards with his trusty four legged offsider, 'Rugby'.
