Gemtree Vineyards

Troy Elliker

Vineyard Operations Manager (aka Chief Sheep Wrangler)

Troy has been Melissa’s right hand man in the vineyard since 2002. Troy came to us from the Barossa Valley region (he finally saw the light) and has a wealth of experience in vineyard operations, equipment, irrigation systems and all manner of troubleshooting. Apart from managing a number of other vineyards in the McLaren Vale region, Troy is also in charge of the sheep that have found a home amongst the Gemtree vines in recent years.

Troy lives on the Gemtree Vineyard with his partner Lexie (who works in our cellar door) and their two daughters, Ava and Violet.
