“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will…,” pronounced the heroine of Charlotte Brontë’s most famous novel. It would seem her namesake was cut from similar cloth. From cutting hair in Melbourne, Jane Eyre has pursued her passion for wine in Burgundy, Australia, New Zealand and Germany. She currently makes Pinot Noir in Burgundy (where she has lived since 2004), both at Domaine Newman and for her eponymous micro-negociant label. Eyre started making Pinot in Victoria, Australia in 2012 and visits during vintage for six weeks each year. I understand that the wines are made at fellow Pinot-phile Bill Downie’s cellar.
