Ian Botham and Bob Willis are two of the biggest names in the modern era of world cricket. Geoff Merrill`s reputation on the international wine stage is equally impressive. A mutual passion for their respective professions, cricket and wine, drew them together during the English tour of Australia in 1978. Since then a lasting friendship has developed over many bottles opened and balls bowled. Winemaker Geoff Merrill has an enviable record as a winemaker and show judge spanning some 25 years in Australia, South Africa, The United Kingdom, Italy, USA and New Zealand. His food friendly wines have a large following particularly in the UK where he has visited regularly over the years.
