In McLaren Vale, it’s hard to talk about wine without talking about food. And it’s hard to talk about either without mentioning Pip Forrester, for the self-confessed bossy boots has helped McLaren Vale mature into one of the most respected wine regions in the world.
Her passion for immersing herself in the community was forged at the iconic Salopian Inn, which she owned and managed from 1988 to 2004.
From here Pip merged business acumen and experience as a government executive to serve on progressive boards and even in retirement, she’s a key player in growing the region’s food, wine, tourism and economic sectors.
Pip’s contribution is too vast to mention but has been instrumental in building, bringing prosperity and pride to the region she loves, the Fleurieu Region.
