Debbie Lauritz takes coveted winemaking role

Debbie Lauritz has been appointed head winemaker - Mudgee for Robert Oatley Vineyards.

 


Lauritz has been senior winemaker for Cumulus Wines for a decade and will be supported by David Richards, also ex Cumulus, who moved to Mudgee earlier this year when ROV began processing for Cumulus Wines at the family’s Montrose winery.

The appointments follow the departure of Rob and Pia Merrick who moved to Victoria earlier this year to pursue other career options.

Lauritz is an experienced wine show judge and has also worked in Alsace (France), Marlborough (NZ) and Niagara (Canada). She has also made her own range for Naked Wines.

“This augers well for ROV” said the group's director of winemaking Larry Cherubino.

“Debbie will be working with a wide range of regions from across the country – she is a very experienced and talented winemaker. Additionally, her offsider David Richards is a terrific new appointment.”
