Originally born in Western Australia, Gary completed a Bachelor of Literature, before moving to Japan to study and work as an English teacher. Upon returning to Australia he had an epiphany during a brief stint as a Japanese speaking tour guide in Queensland, and began work in the vineyards of Margaret River.
A five week vintage posting at Ridge Vineyards California turned into a
2 year full time position under the tutelage of winemaker Paul Draper and
from there Gary has worked in Oregon and various regions within Australia.
The Jamsheed label began in 2003 with a focus on single vineyard
Syrahs and aromatic whites from unique sites in Victoria.
