Ann teaches a range of wine-related subjects at Melbourne Polytechnic. After Ann’s first degree in science, she taught chemistry, science and mathematics for some years whilst becoming increasingly captivated by the wine industry. After studying Wine Science and making wine in the Macedon Ranges, Ann joined the teaching staff at Melbourne Polytechnic.
Ann has been with Melbourne Polytechnic for over 10 years, starting in the VET sector and moving into Higher Education training when our degrees in Viticulture and Winemaking were established. As Ann has experience studying remotely, she enjoys teaching online classes as well as those on campus. She believes that she has the best job at Melbourne Polytechnic – choosing, tasting, teaching about wines from many of the world’s best wine regions from both a production and sensory viewpoint.
Ann is interested in all aspects of the wine industry and is undertaking the Master of Wine from the London-based Institute of Masters of Wine. Anne is also a qualified Wine and Spirits Education Trust educator. Ann also holds a Bachelor of Science (Chemistry) from the University of Melbourne, and a Bachelor of Wine Science from Charles Sturt University.
