Greg Walsh

Grower Liaison Officer

Greg has over 25 years of commercial experience and has worked in agriculture, horticulture, viticulture and
winemaking. Greg’s family have been involved in the Australian agricultural sector since the 1850’s principally
in cropping and livestock. Early in his career Greg like many young agriculturalists supplemented his
income by working in the hospitality industry. After working in a bar in Acland St, St Kilda, Greg had an
epiphany on how to combine his agricultural pursuits with hospitality – work in the wine industry!

Prior to joining Qualia Wines in December 2014, Greg spent nearly 13 years with one of the largest Australian
corporate wineries where he worked as both a viticulturist and a winemaker. These roles included local
and national responsibilities. Greg was involved with both production and research whilst at this company,
conveying both technical and practical information to various audiences.

Greg considers the role of Grower Liaison Officer as the nexus between grape and glass. He said; “Mildura
and the surrounding areas from which Qualia Wine Services sources it fruit climes make it a pleasure to get
out on the vineyards and ‘kick some dirt’. It’s a great place to live and raise a family because sporting, cultural
and artistic pursuits meld together. It is possible on a weekend to watch your kids play one of the many
sports available within the district in the morning, attend a local performing arts group in the afternoon and
take in a national or international artist perform in the evening. In the vineyard this diversity is also reflected
in the grape varieties grown and the wines we make.”
