Butch Morgan wines was conceived when winemaker Brian Conway (www.izwaywines.com) moved into businessman Lou Villella’s neighbourhood in Melbourne, Australia, in 2013.
The two new neighbours discovered a shared desire to offer fresh, fun and great value wine internationally, building on existing networks to expand into new and developing markets. They were seeking wine for their table and wine for the world, and so Butch Morgan was born.
Good, Better, Butch Morgan!
Brian started in the wine game buying wine from auction at the tender age of 18. After buying some cracking Bordeaux for his Dad, he bought a book on the finest Chateau of Bordeaux and was instantly hooked! Fast forward to 2017 and Brian is a 20-year veteran of the wine industry. Following a series of vintages in Australia, Europe and the US, Brian has devoted much of his time in the industry to fine wine production in the Barossa Valley, through his business with Craig Isbel, Izway Wines.
After graduating from University with a Chemistry degree, Lou quickly realised he was not suited to wearing safety glasses and a white coat and preferred working in sales and marketing. He has travelled extensively for work and continues to spend a considerable amount of time in Asia. Lou’s parents immigrated to Australia in 1960 from Calabria, Italy and brought with them many of the traditions of Southern Italy including winemaking. Lou’s interest in wine began as a little boy when his father asked him to crush grapes with his feet and some 45 years later, Lou still makes wine at home although it is nowhere near as good as the Butch Morgan stuff!
