Brothers Michael, Peter and Phillip Noyce grew up in the wine growing region of Griffith in the Riverina area of New South Wales and developed an interest in viticulture and wine science at an early age, particularly through their father Bill who was one of the earlier Presidents of the Griffith Wine and Food Society.
Michael practiced as a lawyer for many years and led his business to achieve national recognition and a number of Australian Business Excellence Awards. As well as legal qualifications he has a Master of Business Administration and is a former Chairman, CEO and director of an innovative and pioneering internet based public company.
Peter is a Sydney University Medical Graduate and a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons. Since the Noyce family has been farming in the Wollombi valley he has become increasingly interested in the science of agriculture and is now also a graduate in wine science from Charles Sturt University. In producing Noyce Brothers unique wines Peter has brought to our wine growing a dedication and attention to detail that perfectly complements Philip’s creativity and flair.
Phillip has been directing films since the age of 17 and is now one of Australia’s foremost directors. He has won many Awards starting with ‘Newsfront’ in 1979 and the most recent being the AFI Best Film Award for his controversial stolen generations story ‘Rabbit Proof Fence’. In 2011 Phillip was a producer and director of the highly acclaimed TV series ‘Revenge’.
