She oversees every aspect of winemaking, from the development of the vineyard blocks to bottle production. Her wines express the elegant and beautiful terroir of the Marlborough region and are now recognized as some of the best in New Zealand.One of the most accomplished winemakers in New Zealand, Jules has been called the “Queen of Sauvignon Blanc.”
