Justin Purser brings extensive international experience and perspective to Best’s Wines. After graduating from Adelaide University with a Bachelor of Science in Oenology, Justin worked at Primo Estate Wines in South Australia (also the home of Joseph Wines) for three years. From there he moved overseas where he worked vintages at Peregrine Wines in Central Otago, New Zealand, well known for its premium Pinot Noir, and Azienda Brezza Giacomo e Figli in Barolo, producer of fine wines from Italy.

Between 2008 and 2011, Justin supervised a team at Domaine de Montille, Volnay, in Burgundy, where he oversaw the production of Grand Cru and Premier Cru wines. In November 2011, Justin relocated from France for his role as Winemaker at Best’s.
