Dale Shearer, Director of Red Emu Products is a highly recognised and proud Aboriginal. Born in St George, Queensland, he is well known for his Rugby League Career representing Queensland and Australia. One of the Kamilaroi people, whose land stretches through South Queensland, crossing over the border to NSW, Red Emu is 100% Indigenous owned.
The name Red Emu, relates directly to his heritage, with the Totem being the Emu, which is tall and strong; their movement fast and agile. The colour red is the land of my people and the ochre colour is a sign of wisdom – traditionally used by the initiated.
The McIntyre river which flows through the Kamilaroi region, nourishes the vineyards and surrounding land ultimately forming the connection for this unique opportunity and partnership with Sirromet.
