The di Lusso Team
From the vineyard to the restaurant, di Lusso Estate has quite a team!
Our two Chiefs behind the counter are Paul Burk, from Thursday through the week to Sunday, and Clitie Murdoch, from Monday to Wednesday.
Our Head Chef is Ali McCarthy.
Our winemaker since 2018 vintage is Tony Hewitt.
I contract out the mechanical work to local legend Glen Sargeant. Tony Hweit makes some beautiful wines (and doubles as our CIO!). I look after the vines, figs and olives, while Luanne Hill is responsible for the beautiful gardens that are such a feature of di Lusso Estate, and also for our Loyalty Membership Clubs.
