Jerome Scarborough - Winemaker
Jerome Scarborough has been in the wine industry his entire life. Growing up watching his father Ian Scarborough in the vineyards and the winery, inspired him to follow in his footsteps. Like his father, Jerome went to Roseworthy Agricultural College in Adelaide and left with two important things: a Bachelor of Applied Science in Viticulture and his life partner, Liz Riley.
After travelling Australia working in various viticultural roles including Vineyard Manager at Lindeman’s Hunter Valley from 1996 to 2000 Jerome returned to the family business as General Manager. He became Winemaker in 2005 and has worked in the family business across a variety of roles ever since.
It’s an inspired passion for the vineyards where Jerome’s heart lies. He strongly believes to make good wine you need first to understand the vineyards, the soil and the conditions. It’s this pioneering work alongside his wife Liz where he’s making a profound impact. In 2022, Jerome was awarded Viticulturist of the Year by Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism for his work in sustainability.
Proud parents to Callum and Hannah, Jerome is a keen gardener and passionate foodie. He is also a rugby tragic, cheering on the local Pokolbin Reds Rugby Team whenever he can.
