Ragan Wood grew up in New Zealand where his love of wine making began after completing his training at Eastern Institute of Technology.
After several years in the New Zealand industry he moved to Canada and then to the Napa Valley in California to continue building his experience. From there he travelled through Europe and to Spain before settling in Western Australia.
With more than 10 years experience and 12 vintages under his belt, Ragan joined the team at Oakover as head winemaker in 2014. Since then he has expanded the groups business to include Sidekick Cider, which was launched in 2016.
