Matt Deller MW joins Wirra Wirra as CEO
Wirra Wirra has made two senior appointments, with Matthew Deller MW taking the reins as chief executive officer and Emma Wood entrusted as senior winemaker of the revered McLaren Vale brand.
Matthew joins the business from Villa Maria. Prior to his role in New Zealand, Matthew has extensive experience in the United States of America as chief operating officer for TOR Napa Valley as well as senior roles at Wine Access and Constellation Brands. He became a Master of Wine in 2016.
Matthew said, “It’s a huge honour to take on custodianship of Wirra Wirra following fourteen years of outstanding leadership by Andrew Kay. Wirra Wirra’s amazing people and culture, commitment to biodynamics, and the authenticity, provenance and character of its wines position it firmly amongst Australia’s finest wineries. Now, with Emma Wood at the winemaking helm, I’m excited to work with the team to take Wirra Wirra to the next level.”
