Andrew & Prue O’Shanesy never imagined living anywhere other than their sheep and cropping farm in Queensland. That was until a friend mentioned a little vineyard for sale in Tasmania’s Tamar Valley. From there, things just started falling into place. Throwing caution to the wind they moved to Tassie with their two children, their ute, two cattle dogs, horse and cat in tow. Together they are the brains and brawn behind Wines for Joanie. Who is Joanie you ask? An inspiring woman; vivacious, creative and strong. She was also Andrew’s mum, always joking Andrew should make wine just for her.
