Meet the Winemaker (Episode 27): Celine Rousseau, Chalkers Crossing

Debra catches up with Celine Rousseau of Chalkers Crossing based in the Hilltops and Tumbarumba region of New South Wales, Australia. As a French women in the Australia winery, Celine went in the opposite direction to most Australians in the wine industry (the so-called flying winemakers), which gave her the opportunity to set up the Chalkers Crossing winery from scratch. They chat about what a girl from Paris does with her spare time in such a small and remote region and Celine tells of her biggest winemaking honour – winning the Qantas Young Winemaker of the Year in 2002, just two years after the establishment of the winery, a major surprise, but a great recognition.
