Gillian Spakouskas

Director of Yorkshire Heart Ltd

Gillian can be found mainly out in the vineyard alongside her husband Chris, either on the ride on lawnmower (it takes 8 hours a week to keep up with the grass!) with a strimmer in hand or working on the vines... sometime we catch her talking to them! She is our main winemaker who won Mercian Wine Maker of the Year 2014 which made her immensely proud of what the team as a whole had achieved.

Helen joined the team in 2015, she splits her time between working with Tim in the brewery cleaning, casking and delivering our beers as well as out in the vineyard with Gillian & Chris working on the vines.
