Jenny Stonier has been a sales and export marketing director in the wine industry for over 30 years. Originally working for family-owned Stonier Wines, she then worked as a consultant to several wine-based companies, prior to joining her husband Greg as Marketing Manager of Vintessential Laboratories.
Jenny has been involved with the Vintessential Test Kit range from the beginning – the first Test Kits were developed in 2003 and new kits have been researched and created ever since.
Greg Howell founded Vintessential Laboratories in 1995. As an experienced Chemist and Oenologist, he saw the opportunity to provide wineries in Australia with a reliable and top quality range of test kits so that winemakers could do their own testing for a wide range of quality parameters. Greg is now the R&D Manager at Ferment and is developing new Test Kits for the international market.
Ferment is working closely with Awareness Technology of Florida USA to provide and develop more Test Kits for the widely used WineryPro automatic analyser.
