THE FARM

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.
