SA Networking Night

SA Franchise Networking Evening

Wednesday 10 September 2014

This is an ideal opportunity to network with colleagues and friends from the Franchise sector. A relaxed atmosphere, with a wine expert, Damien Smith, sharing his experience and providing tasting of some great South Australian wines.

Come join the FCA SA Committee, and your peers, and share and discuss current franchise issues and trends.

Damien Smith

Damien was born in Adelaide in 1975, and has resided alongside McLaren Vale for most of his life. A keen waterman, from surfing to spearfishing and diving, all in a region that houses some of Australia’s most elegant Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache wines.

 Start-ups with Moet Hennessy Australia in Sydney, then over to New Zealand for several years saw him present over one hundred champagne and cognac masterclasses, dinners and events. Family drew him back to South Australia, with the birth of children Oscar and Zara to his Texan born wife Gretchen. This coincided with the purchase of the family farm 100 Carribie situated on the foot of the Yorke Peninsula overlooking Kangaroo Island, where the pursuit of larger more perfect waves was developed in this rugged and pristine environment.

During his time back in South Australia, Damien has spent time in senior management roles with other McLaren Vale wineries including Constellation Wines Australia and Chapel Hill, until in late 2013 he joined Frank Mitolo to look after Mitolo wines across domestic markets, Asia and New Zealand, whilst travelling the rest of the world speaking of the virtues of Mitolo Wines. Damien and Frank have had personal friendship spanning over a decade from the time when Moet Hennessy distributed Frank’s wines.
