Introducing Team Mayer:
30 April 2014
For Ricky and Michael, BOF 2014 really will be a ‘baptism of fire’, as these two boys are just discovering wine. Ricky is a graphic designer and Michael works in property. Both are bloggers, Ricky writes about food on Forksake For Michael, fashion is his passion; follow him at jackofalltrends. These boys are out to have fun and learn about wine whilst they do so, as Michael says, “we like working on projects together.”
Whether or not these boys will be well matched with the inimitable Timo Mayer remains to be seen, Timo comments on his team’s dynamics, “We’re a bunch of farmers & hairdressers. Every dog has his day!” For BOF vintage 2014, Timo sports a pair of postmodern black-framed glasses, lens free. Of Germanic descent, Timo makes wine at Gembrook Hill and also has his own label, Timo Mayer. His is an edgy style of winemaking; minimal handling, no filtration, and “bring back the funk”.
