The Signature 1999 honours John Edward Heine, 1944-2002, Director, Chairman, mentor and mate of Yalumba since 1986. On the international corporate stage for Sola International he was an astute and cunning commercial leader and crusader for global integration.
Away from the cut and thrust of business, he harboured a dream of involvement in areas of philanthropy and saw it as his prime focus in retirement. He revelled in the fellowship of wine, food and good company, always wearing a smile; then retreated to the solitude and tranquillity of any nearby wilderness to reflect and fish for trout on the fly.
An intent listener and razor sharp observer, we miss him. It is sad that we will not share this wine together. But we will indeed with Barb, Pete, Kate and Marc.
