Her wine career since has included additional overseas vintages in Italy and Spain, and back in Australia, lengthy stints in McLaren Vale and the Hunter Valley.A highly respected wine judge who has been a panel chair at many regional and capital city wine shows, Sam was appointed Chair of Judges at the Sydney Royal Wine Show in 2014.She was the first female and the youngest judge to achieve that position, but it hasn’t all been smooth sailing.In fact, Sam says her decision to launch Stargazer was due in part to the blatant sexism she’s dealt with throughout her career.First up though, Sam recounts how she transitioned from law student to winemaker.
