The Flinders Run Family

Emanuel and Laura SkorposLike most companies our epic journey has been one of trial and tribulation, with many lessons learnt as the journey unfolded.

It takes the love and support of all involved to make for a successful company, this support has stemmed from, parents, grandparents, brothers and friends, with each element from three generations helping in one way or another to bring Emanuel’s dream to fruition.

Emanuel Skorpos

It was during this time that he met Ian Smith Vineyard Manager and Vitticulturalist for Leasingham wines who identified the Southern Flinders Ranges as one of the best kept secrest in Australia’s wine industry.

Emanuel’s day to day duties include working  in the vineyards and olive grove to ensure that they are kept growing at their optimum, as well as working closely with the Flinders Run winemaker to produce premium wines with a distinct  flavour and personality which are unique to the Southern Flinders Ranges.

Much of his time today is spent on the International stage where he is proud to fly the flag as the ambassador for the Southern Flinders Ranges as a viticulture region.
