After his career took him to the Middle East, Rick returned to Australia where he completed his studies in oenology at Charles Sturt University in 1992.

In 2000, he founded Labyrinth and produced his first commercial vintage sourcing fruit from the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard from the Santa Maria Valley A.V.A.
