“I have been technically working for De Bortoli since I was 16 but in a family business I feel like you are a part of it from the day you are born.”

Kate Webber is the daughter of Leanne De Bortoli and Chief Winemaker Steve Webber and the eldest of the De Bortoli family’s “Fourth Genners”. After finishing high school, Kate took two years off, a year in France and a year of hospitality at the family restaurant. She completed a Science degree at Monash University, and then spent two years running the winery lab at the Yarra Valley Estate.

She has flown the coup to learn something about the online wine business in Vinomofo. “It’s great to work within a dynamic team who love wine as much as I do!”

Kate has recently completed the WSET level 3 and would one day like to do something exciting back in the family business.
