Winemaker sentenced to prison for destroying rival’s wine


08 - nov - 17

More than two years after a winemaker from Barossa Valley had destroyed a rival company’s wine worth more than $300,000, the court sentenced him to a three-year-seven-month prison term.

According to The Guardian, Trevor David Jones entered Kellermeister Wines in the wee hours of 22 February, 2015 and opened the valves. The act led to over 27,000 litres of shiraz and chardonnay wines draining out. The lawyers argued that the company not only lost the wine, it also suffered a loss of reputation and future business opportunities.

The court observed that Jones, 60, committed the crime out of resentment. Kellermeister Wines was previously owned by Jones’ father. Jones himself was an employee of the winery till 2010. He was dismissed from his services thereafter.

The court handed out a suspended sentence. He has been placed on a two-year bond for good behaviour.
