Stuart Olsen is the winemaker and owner of Eloquesta Wines from Mudgee, NSW. Stuart was drawn to wine making and had a passion for it from his university days. He believes in the diversity and potential of  regional New South Wales, where he was born and has spent most of his life. The landscape and the wine growers of the Mudgee region are a great focus for the Eloquesta Brand, as Stuart see’s the great potential it has for producing delicious, balanced wines.

Stuart’s approach to winemaking is to use antique methods where possible, such as foot treading, constant hand plunging of ferments, subtle and gentle extraction of fruit flavours and texture through some extended skin contact and a minimalist approach in use of older seasoned oak on the wines. Stuart is an awesome guy making great wines with care and thought.
