I am known as Ampie to all, and I’ve worked in the vineyards for 30years. When I came to Brookdale it was run down with overgrown vines with a virus. It saddened me to see it uprooted and I was determined to bring the Brookdale vines back to life. I look at vines like my children as a parent rears and nurtures their children. I love what I do and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, seeing them lifted in spirit and knowledge.
