Author Biography - Shaun Byrne

Gilles Lapalus has wine flowing through his veins. The third generation of a wine-producing family from the Cluny region of Burgundy, Gilles embarked on a prestigious wine making career that has taken him across three decades to the French regions of Burgundy, Languedoc, Medoc, and Beaujolais, and further afield to Tuscany, Campania, Chili and Australia. In 2001, he moved to Australia to become the manager of biodynamic viticulture and winemaking at Sutton Grange Winery near Castlemaine, central Victoria. Five years ago, he established boutique Australian vermouth brand Maidenii with business partner Shaun Byrne. Shaun Byrne has developed his love and understanding of the beverage industry through a rich career at some of Australia's best bars. It was while managing Melbourne institution Gin Palace that he met Gilles, and they quickly established that Shaun's cocktail experience and self-professed bar geekery was the perfect complement to Gilles' winemaking knowledge.
