Meet the team - Glenmore Wines Margaret River, Western Australia

Family owned and operated, we're a small and dedicated team at Glenmore Wine.

Meet the makers and growers; from viticulture to winemaking at our boutique winery on Caves Road in Yallingup, Western Australia.

Ian Bell

Ian Bell is the owner of Glenmore vineyard, winery and farm, a 5th generation farmer who also has a strong viticulture and winemaking background.

Ian worked for Keith and Clare Mugford of Mosswood Wines from 1985-2006. Keith and Clare encouraged Ian to study viticulture and so he enrolled at Roseworthy College (South Australia) in 1987.

After graduation in 1989 he rejoined Mosswood full-time. In 1991 Mosswood sent Ian to undertake vintage at Domain de la Pousse D'or in Burgundy. Here he had hands on experience in the Burgundian wine style and winemaking techniques.

Winemaking follows traditional techniques while incorporating modern technology.
