Michael Oxner

Michael Oxner, CEO & Founder of the Winemakeri Group of companies in 1992. Started the company as a two person homebrew shop selling wholesale out the back door. Learned how to brew at the tender age of 10, helping his grandfather pick dandelions to make country wine! Now spends most of his time in the R&D yeast lab, tending to his 3 acre experimental vineyard and practising his air guitar. If it has alcohol in it, he has probably brewed it.

Christopher, Production & Warehouse Manager. Christopher is a tech geek with a passion for learning. For him, quality is not a destination, it is a journey in itself. He joined our team on a journey of organizational and quality improvement. When he is not playing shepherd to the production and warehouse team, he can be found schmoozing at the nearest brewpub or adjusting the pH and nutrients in his saltwater aquarium.
