Bronnley Cahill could be described as one of a new breed of women working in the wine industry. A qualified winemaker, not only does she make Brookwood Estate’s premium wines, her role at Brookwood encapsulates everything from wine production, business management and planning, as well as being involved in the busy cellar door and café.
Brookwood Estate was established in 1996 by Bronnley’s parents, Trevor and Lyn Mann, and it was this venture that gave her an insight into the grape and wine industry, and a passion to become involved in the family business.
All wine is made on site and Bronnley says that this is a key component to the quality of Brookwood Estates wines, not to mention spectacular fruit and then there’s the secret ingredient: love.
“I believe that you can taste it. It’s the little extras along the way that we do, because we love what we do. All of these things compound to make a special product,” she said.
