About Greenhouse Knight
We are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to our portfolio, Greenhouse Knight, one a bit closer to home. Led by CellarHand’s very own General Manager, Sam Hooper, and inner Melbourne hospo veteran and venue owner, Szebastiaan Butler, who have teamed up to create this eminently drinkable line of wines from the Yarra Valley. Taking on a true “Australiana” approach with wines such as ‘BourgonYA’ and ‘Straya’, these wines are not only delicious but also show a thoughtful use of winemaking techniques to match that drinkability with some thought-provoking touches.
About Sam Hooper & Szebastiaan Butler
Friends for almost two decades, Sam and Szebastiaan first set out to make Greenhouse Knight as a one-off and yet are on the cusp of bottling their eighth vintage. Sam was keen to get back into the production end to “keep his eye in” (having studied Viticulture and Winemaking and working numerous vintages) and Szebastiaan had an interest in seeing how his passion was crafted. They have leaned on the help, expertise and logistical know how of some of their close winemaking friends in the Yarra Valley to bring this project to life.
