Bethany joined the Yalumba Nursery team in May 2023, bringing with her vast experience in viticulture spanning grape supply, viticulture management, technical viticulture, and viticulture research across many regions of South Australia, Victoria, and Tasmania. Bethany is a passionate manager who draws on a breadth of contemporary viticulture practices with a strong focus on sustainability and holistic environment management, and has viticultural consultative experience across a broad range of geographically and climatically diverse environments, and is adept at working closely with a broad range of customers to deliver tailored solutions.
Linda McLeod started in the Nursery in June 1994, working between administration and the grafting floor. Since then Linda has remained one of the constants at the Nursery and developed an intimate knowledge of the business. Linda is the first point of call with our customers, and her dual role during vintage in the grape lab at Yalumba's Angaston winery also means that she has detailed knowledge of many of our customers’ needs. Linda is married with two children and six grandchildren. She dreams of a day when she can spend all her time with the grandchildren, but at the moment she works to spoil them all.
