Gill Gordon-Smith

Gill grew up in the McLaren Vale region and began studying wine while still at school, before joining Qantas as a flight attendant.

With a passion for wine in her veins, Gill became a member of the dynamic team that developed Qantas’ award-winning ‘Sommelier in the Sky’ wine education program, training over 3000 crew members to promote Australian wines on board.

After 20 years, Gill hung up her wings and started a wine education and tasting bar, Fall from Grace in McLaren Vale.

Gill is a Certified Advanced Educator with Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET®) of London and recently became Australia’s first Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) Society of Wine Educators.
