Born and raised in New Zealand, Abby was always interested in the world of gastronomy. The tribe which her family descended from started one of the first Maori owned wine businesses in the world, which, combined with her passion for the culinary arts, sparked her interest in pursuing an education in winemaking. Abby has made wine in five different countries, including France, Germany, New Zealand, and Australia but with her time in the United States, she had become enamored of Sonoma County and knew that she would one day return to California to continue her winemaking career.
In 2019, eager to return to California, Abby became the Assistant Winemaker at Kosta Browne Winery in Sebastopol. Abby joined Medlock Ames in August 2020, leading the vineyard and winery operations. In her spare time enjoys baking, cooking, brewing beer and being outdoors.
