PLC Old Collegian, Kym Carr (nee Eyres, 1995) will be joining Farm2Fork this year with her own wine label - Dream Bird.
A passion for science and art lead Kym into winemaking after she graduated from PLC.
"I began a winemaking career after completing a Horticultural degree. I worked in viticulture for a few years and then worked in Beaujolais in France".
On her return, she secured a job at Vasse Felix and continued her studies in winemaking. She went on to work as a winemaker at Deep Woods and Juniper Estate before taking a break to have children.
In 2015 she established her own label 'Dream Bird' after reaching out to Naked Wines, a crowd funded platform established to support emerging winemakers, and was quickly picked up as a featured winemaker.
"Dream Bird is dedicated to my late sister, who passed away from breast cancer in 2011. Every wine shares a memory of my beloved sister and aims to pass on her love of life to everyone who drinks them".
PLC Farm2Fork is on Saturday 25 August, commencing at 5.30pm and includes a degustation of over 20 gourmet dishes showcasing WA produce.
