Simon's involvement in the wine industry began at the world renowned Waite Campus of the University of Adelaide, a member of the Wine Innovation Cluster, where he studied for his masters degree in wine business in 2006 & 2007.

The master of wine business program at Waite was a very well integrated blend of all aspects of global wine marketing; winery business management; and vineyard and winery operations, incorporating comprehensive technical aspects of viticulture, oenology, wine sensory evaluation and packaging.

As often seems to happen in families, perhaps Simon was destined to follow his father Ron into the industry, who was part of Australia's initial export drive in the 1980s.

Prior to establishing Simon Lang Wines, Simon practised as a corporate, commercial and tax lawyer for a range of organisations including large law and accountancy firms, government and an ASX listed public company, as well as practising in criminal law earlier in his career.

Simon’s entrepreneurial spirit and a growing fascination with the wine industry though proved irresistible.
