This Cantabrian native joined the Mt. Beautiful team in February 2019 bringing 20+ years’ experience in winemaking. Other regions he’s worked in include Pfalz, Oregon, Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Waiheke Island and Central Otago, Mornington Peninsula, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia and Languedoc. He’s produced wine for Quartz Reef, Stonyridge, Jacques Lurton and Plantagenet. Outside the wine world Jarred worked as a Stationhand on cattle stations in the Kimberley and Pilbara regions of NW Australia cattle mustering on horse and by piloting a helicopter. Some of Jarred’s personal and professional accomplishments include making gold medal winning Pinot noir and Chardonnay from fruit grown in Waikato (a region more renowned for dairying, considered too fertile and wet to produce quality grapes), climbing a 6000m peak in Ladakh, Indian Himalayas in 2016, and walking the length of the South Island (1300km) on the Te Araroa trail in 2017/18. When he’s not in the cellar or surveying the vineyards with Garrick, you might find him fishing, hunting, engaging in water sports or traveling to remote places.
