Dan started as Katnook’s assistant winemaker in 2019, soon after graduating in winemaking from the University of Adelaide. Before and during his studies, Dan worked in both the winery and vineyard at Wirra Wirra, McLaren Vale for 7 years.
Dan loves living and working in Coonawarra, noting, ‘The wines here have so much potential and this area feels like true countryside - relaxed and easy going.
I’m happy to be amongst a nice bunch of people. It’s wonderful to be close to beautiful scenery and I have to say, I’m loving the crayfish.
And of course it's awesome assisting and learning from our Senior Winemaker Tim Heath. He makes my role really interesting and exciting.'
