Owner/Operator of Daylesford Wine Tours, Clay was the youngest club-owner in Australia at the age of 18. "Voodoo Blues" was a premiere blues and jazz club and boasted Australia's "Best International Wine List" 2 years running. Whatever....This saw him being courted by the best Aussie wineries for his business. He also works in Film, T.V. and voice-overs and has owned three well respected small businesses. He holds a world-renowned WSET (Wine Spirit Education Trust) Advanced Level 2 certificate and his "Favourite drop?! Easy. Big Cabs." The business plan is shaped heavily on the things Clay likes from the global wine tours he has been on, "Fun, relaxed, flexible, tailored, informative and suited to each persons knowledge about wines. Daylesford has the best cold climates around".
Renai has a big love for the local food and wine of the Daylesford region. She has an extensive background in hospitality striving to ensure that all guests feel welcome and enjoy their experience in Daylesford.
Along with Clay she holds a WSET Advanced Level 2 certificate.
"My favourite drop is big buttery Chardonnays (so 80's), but I have absolutely fallen in love with this region's amazing Pinot Noirs!".
Having worked in a few key accounts and administrative roles in Daylesford, Renai is the behind the scenes guru of DWT. More than likely you will have your bookings looked after by this gem!
