Two little girls lost their winemaker father - now they need your help



Esme and Clementine Dell tragically lost their winemaker father Vaughn in May.

The 39-year-old died from a heart attack, leaving behind his wife Linda Morice and their two young daughters.

The former basketball player and Australian Rules players started Sinapius wines at Pipers River in 2005, buying the former Golders vineyard.

The couple, who started dating as teenagers, built up a massive reputation for quality.

Now Langton's is holding an auction to raise funds to ensure the future of the two girls remains bright.

"We are still deeply saddened and missing Vaughn immensely but also very driven to keep things going," said Linda.

"I’ve had some great help from the industry with Joe Holyman and Peter Dredge both stepping up to help me with the wines. Hopefully, with their guidance, I can continue to produce amazing wines as well as Vaughn has done.

"Now Langton's are running a fundraising wine auction to raise funds for the girls future." 

Holyman, Dr Edge, Jansz, Dalrymple. Josef Chromy, Delamere, Bay of Fires, Bream Creek, Pressing Matters, 10 Minutes by Tractor, Lost Farm, Apogee, Chatto, Holm Oak and Tolpuddle are among the wineries donating. 

There are some amazing wines listed at www.langtons.com.au/auctions/this-week and the auction closes on Sunday, July 26.

A trust account has also been set up to help the girls now and in the children’s future - Linda Jean Morice in trust for Esme and Clementine Dell (BSB 087-728, Account 97-768-6325).
