Keeda Zilm grew up in Kingston, 250km south-east of Adelaide. Whilst winemaking, specifically, wasn’t her first consideration she has always had a passion for agriculture and a path of winemaking seemed a compelling direction to further explore this interest. In October 2018, after an incredible 16 years at OLW, Keeda took charge of the winemaking at Vickery Wines, where her experience in Australia’s pre-eminent Riesling region is perfectly suited. She had also to that point, worked on every single Vickery vintage since the first in 2014, as the Vickery Watervale Rieslings have all been juiced at OLW under her care. Working alongside John Vickery at each step of the grape growing and winemaking process, Keeda is the custodian of John’s grape growing and winemaking philosophy and processes. Miss Zilm wines is Keeda’s personal winemaking project. The focus is on the Clare Valley, organic practices and minimal intervention where her experience, passion and skills align.
