Campbell first joined the National Wine & Grape
Industry Centre in 2008 as the assistant experimental winemaker and completed
his CSU Wine Science degree in 2009. While studying he worked at Domaine
Chandon, Yarra Valley for two consecutive vintages. In 2010/11 he travelled the
world extensively returning for another vintage in McLaren Vale in 2012. He
rejoined the Centre in 2013 as the experimental winemaker and has since worked
extremely hard to streamline the winery operations and data management systems.
His major achievements include the development of software specifically designed
for research winemaking, the update of processing equipment and the expansion
of the winery capacity to allow work on a broader range of research projects.
