Born and raised in Southern China, Jack decided to travel to Australia at the age of 16 to continue his education there. He developed a passion for wine at a young age, and moved to undertake formal wine studies at the University of Adelaide.
In 2011 Jack and his wife Ula formed their own company – Southern Vintners and Negociants – which has successfully operated for the last decade. Apart from making wines from growers’ grapes, the company also owns vineyards in South Australia. Jack operates his own import and sales team in mainland China, where he has in-depth knowledge of Chinese wine distribution. In 2013 Jack founded Adelaide Wine Society, which focuses on wine education and themed tastings. As an AWAC (AWRI)- certified wine judge, Jack has been involved in numerous wine shows, as well as being a contributing tasting panelist for wine magazines.
Currently enrolled in the Master of Wine programme, Jack makes his own Pinot Noir and Grenache as an hobby.
