Winemaking has been a life-long ambition of Sue-Ann's having stemmed from a family background in viticulture spanning five generations in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula and encompassing two "Grape King" titles. After her formal education in winemaking from the renowned University of Adelaide, South Australia, and several vintages abroad, Sue-Ann has become one of Canada's top winemakers, winning over 450 national and international wine awards.
She was acclaimed as "2002 Winemaker of the Year" by the Ontario Wine Society and is a two-time recipient of the International Wine and Spirits Award in London, England for one of the top four "Women in Wine" in the world. Currently Miss Staff is proprietor of Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery based on her family's two hundred year old estate in Jordan, Ontario, producing quality VQA wines from grapes grown on the escarpment property.
As well, Sue-Ann makes wine for Megalomaniac in Vineland, Ontario, and liaisons between it and its sister property, Chateau La Confession, in St.Emilion Bordeaux, France.
