Stuart Downes and Bevan Newton Johnson share economics and waterpolo experiences from their university days. So when Shannon Vineyards started harvesting grapes it was a natural progression that the grapes found their way to their next home at the new multi-level Newton Johnson cellar. The Newton Johnson winery makes use of all the latest gravitational engineering principles and grape sorting techniques. This ensures that the clean fruit benefits from minimal handling and therefore minimal winemaking intervention. 

It is this close working relationship between the Newton Johnson family and Downes brothers over the years that has made this journey so successful.  Husband and wife, Gordon and Nadia Newton Johnson nurture the winemaking at the Newton Johnson cellar.
