The founder of “Storm Ridge”, Michael Warren was born in 1961. He entered the wine Industry in 1985 with Thomas Hardy and Sons as a Sales Representative, Michael soon discovered that selling wine was not enough. During his career, a property along the Maroondah Highway, regarded as the “Golden Mile of Yarra Valley” in Coldstream, came into the market. He was immediately engrossed by the picturesque landscape and the remarkable flavours of the grapes that this region had to offer. He saw this as the opportunity for his dream to come into fruition, to create wines of his own label from grape to bottle. Thereafter, Michael and his wife, Mary established 10 acres of vines in Yarra Valley. This began the creation of the Storm Ridge Label in 1993.
