The Dudes Crew

Margaret River's Coolest Wine Tour Crew...

We might be biased, but we’re pretty sure Wine for Dudes Wine Tours Margaret River have the most rocking crew driving dudes and dudettes around the Margaret River Wine Region! Not only are our team full of personality, they’re worldly, social, and have a huge amount of experience when it comes to wine and tourism! They drink it (a lot!), and live it!

Wine for Dudes are so stoked with their little team, and know that when you jump on board a Wine For Dudes Wine Tour you will be in for a day in your life you will never forget!

So, without further ado, let’s meet the crew…

Chief Dude

John is Wine for Dudes owner and leading tour guide. He’s worked the majority of his adult life in the wine industry, and has a palate to rival some of the finest in the industry! If you’re lucky enough to score a ride with our chief dude, then you’ll be sure to have a day that you’ll never forget! Johnno’s relaxed nature, cheesy jokes, and exceptional wine and regional knowledge ensure his groups always have the most incredible Margaret River experience! Johnno loves a good time, and always has his finger on the pulse of Margaret River’s social scene, or if you’re into surfing or the outdoors, he has all the best tips to ensure you’re living your best life during Margaret River stay!


Marketing Manager & Bookkeeper

Wine for Dudes all-round dudette has been kickin’ with the dudes crew since twenty14, and there’s nothing she hasn’t done! She’s the button presser of our winning awards submissions, the number cruncher, the legal jargon creator, the the whip cracker, and she’ll even jump out and take a tour if needed. Thirsty Kirsty is not only a passionate dudes ambassador, but a zealous promoter of the entire Margaret River region! Although less “thirsty” since becoming a mum, Kirst always has time for a Margaret River Chardonnay!


Admin Guru

Kerrie is the tick to our tock! She makes sure there is a guide to drive, and somewhere to go… pretty much the two most important factors to make a Margaret River wine tour successful!  Kerrie is a true lateral thinker, always coming up with quirky solutions and itinerary plans, so no tour is ever the same!


Admin Guru

If Kim were a wine, she’d be a bubbles …made from Chardonnay grapes of course! Kim has the smooth sophistication of one of Margaret River’s premium drops …with a POP!  Yep, that’s Kim in a nutshell. But seriously, every good admin team needs the person who does “all that other stuff” …and that’s where Kim comes in. On top of the daily reservations and itinerary planning. Kim takes care of all those other day-to-day bits and bobs that makes the dudes office hum!


Tour Guide

Jez is like a walking encyclopaedia, with a psychedelic cover! His knowledge of wine, the region, everything outdoors, and just the greater world as a whole is phenomenal… throw in a bunch of good mates, good times, and his puppy, and you’ve got yourself a Jez! Jez is just a genuine good dude, he’s easy to chat to, a complete cruiser and always lots of fun, making him a fav amongst our dudes customers.


Tour Guide

We won’t be surprised if we see this legend gracing the cover of Forbes magazine one day.  In the meantime, we’re pretty happy to have him in the dudes crew! Dek comes across as a relaxed, easy-going dude, where nothing is ever a problem… he’s awesome… but don’t be mistaken… this guy is actually a secret genius put on this earth to achieve great things.


Tour Guide

When he’s not slinging cocktails, or jamming on his Gee-tar, Billy’s entertaining the troops of the dudes crew in a way that only he can do! Billy has won a bunch of pretty epic drinks-related accolades, and is one of Australia’s top mixologists and bar tenders.  Billy’s got a wild imagination and a bangin’ palate, ensuring his tour groups have the time of their lives, whilst also learning some pretty amazing things along the way!
