Meet The Team
Our outlook is youthful and energetic – encapsulated by our dynamic team bringing together combined focus, drive, competitive nature and daily challenges to be the very best in our field, all through maintaining excellent relations with you – our business partners.
In a short time InterVintner has grown from a small team consisting of its founding directors, to an exemplary array of staff offering a variety of specialised services.
With a domestic foundation well established, and our international footprint continually expanding, our focus is to further strengthen ties with our existing loyal clientele whilst forging new relationships with new clients with a like-minded approach to the business of wine.
As founder and managing director, Julie keeps the machine oiled. Julie has more than 15 years in the wine business and extensive brokerage experience, specialising in Asian export markets. In her spare time Julie enjoys gin and soda, gold class movies, home renovations and long walks on the beach.

Joining the InterVintner in 2009, Paige covers most of Australia’s most famous regions including McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley, but also focuses on the New Zealand market.
