Ubertas Wines

Philip and Kevin Liu have had an interesting journey from growing up in a farm family in Taiwan to becoming winemakers in Australia. Their childhood was spent playing in their grandfather's rice and bamboo fields, learning the value of hard work and being involved in the family's agricultural activities.

Both brothers shared a passion for engineering and pursued engineering degrees. After completing their studies, they joined their father's car components factory, likely contributing to the family business and gaining valuable experience in the manufacturing industry.

In the early 2000s, the entire family made the life-changing decision to migrate to Australia, drawn by the allure of a different lifestyle and the "Australian dream." This decision must have been a significant step for the family, involving a lot of adjustment and adaptation to a new country and culture.

It took Philip and Kevin around five years to settle down in Australia, during which they furthered their education. Philip pursued a master's degree in Oenology at the University of Adelaide, which involves the study of winemaking. This must have been a transformative period for the brothers as they deepened their knowledge of wine production and its nuances.

In addition to Oenology, Kevin also studied Marketing, which would prove to be a valuable skill set in the wine industry. Marketing is crucial in promoting wines and reaching out to potential customers.

Finally, in 2014, the two brothers fulfilled their dream of owning their vineyard, purchasing a mid-size vineyard in North Nuriootpa. This marked the beginning of their winemaking journey, where they could put their education and passion for wine into practice. Starting their winery, named Ubertas Wines, was likely a challenging yet rewarding experience for Philip and Kevin.

Now, their hard work and dedication have come to fruition, as people can enjoy Philip's wine at the Ubertas Wines cellar door. This suggests that their wines have gained recognition and are available for tasting and purchase at their winery's retail location
