People Make Wine

 

People are our business. Incredibly our small team represents 10 nationalities and with this cultural tapestry comes a great knowledge of, and love for, wine. It is what drives us, and across Australia we aim to demonstrate our expertise, passion, energy and care - values we share with our wine producers. We all love food, wine and having fun.  

Saying that, at Untapped we have a strong, professional team, who understand wine, but also that wine is a business. Our intention is to share our very special portfolio of wines from Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Spain, delighting our customers, and their customers with diverse, exceptional wines across a wide range of price points.

Check out our team and get in touch if you would like to chat to us.

Hailing from Uruguay, one of our South American wine producing countries, it's obvious Lucia is a wine lover! Lucia ably manages and supports the sales team across Australia to achieve their goals. Lucia shares her love of wine with sports, a previous career, and and continuing passion. She has travelled to almost all of the wineries we represent as well as doing harvest work in Mallorca, Spain.

Harry Seville
Sales Representative

Harry takes care of a portion of customers in Sydney and is always looking for new and exciting venues to talk to introduce Untapped Wines into. Originally from Wellington, New Zealand, Harry has a background in the social sciences with a bachelor of arts majoring in psychology and criminology. After moving to Sydney at the conclusion of his studies Harry quickly found his passion for all things wine, taking a job with a branch of Langtons. Through Langtons, Harry gained a passion for fine wines and slowly but surely learned the wonder and style of South American wine making. He has seen the wonder of the Casablanca Valley in Chile, however still holds firmly that Malborough has ruined the Sauvignon Blanc grape. He can never be found too far away from a Chilean or Kiwi Pinot or a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz.

OPERATIONS
Alyn Faral
Office Administration & Marketing Assistant

Alyn, our Bachelor in Communication, was born in Uruguay, our small but perfectly formed winemaking country. Before becoming Administration and Marketing Assistant for Untapped Fine Wines, Alyn worked for 5 years in the publicity business. She’s worked for several countries in Europe, South America, the USA and also Australia. She believes that these experiences have thought her how to reach customers by sharing values and the importance of a product.

Since 2014, in Untapped Fine Wines' Uruguayan office, Alyn has been thoroughly building close connections with all wineries that work with us, always keeping in mind that wine and it's environment is a not just any product by trying to bring it to life.

GRAPHIC DESIGN
Fiorella Franzini
Graphic Designer

Fiorella is our graphic designer; working out of Untapped Fine Wines' Uruguayan office. She’s worked locally and abroad as a graphic designer and is slowly becoming in charge of the visual image of the company. Working closely with the marketing team in Melbourne, Fiorella is passionately getting more involved in the wine business and it's world.

Being a fervid traveller, she has lived in different countries for some time, with London her most recentdestination. During the five years in which she resided there, Fiorella was able to absorb plenty of Europe’s culture and its relationship with South American culture. She worked at a prestigious Argentinian restaurant for almost a year, where she had the opportunity to get involved for the first time with Argentinian wines; getting to know the winemaking process, people, consumers and most interestingly the uniqueness that each bottle can bring within.

Now, being part of the Untapped Fine Wines team, she hopes to keep broadening her experiences and knowledge about wine and use the chance to contribute with what she can offer from the design world.
