Zema | Welcome


Farewell and Welcome


They say when it rains, it pours!  After a long spell with the same Zema team at the helm, we recently said farewell to Greg, Robbie & Roberto who have collectively been part of the Zema Family for more than 35 years. No doubt Greg & Robbie are enjoying semi-retirement in the midst of this cold Coonawarra winter, although the same can't be said for Roberto who is probably already at work back home in Italy.

Nevertheless, it is now our pleasure to welcome Joe Cory (pictured above, left), Scott Degenhardt (right) & Kate O’Connell (middle) to Zema Estate. Joe join us as Winemaker, Scott has commenced in the newly created role of Vineyard Manager, & Kate is our Sales and Marketing Manager. Rest assured, these new faces bring plenty of experience and are already working hard to deliver the next vintage of your favourite Zema wines. 

Last but certainly not least, we'd also like to formally introduce Demetrio Zema. Demetrio (Matt’s son) has stepped into the role as a director and is enjoying providing support to Nick in the management and promotion of Zema Estate. Demetrio provides a youthful enthusiasm and vision which is a great advantage to Zema Estate looking forward.
