Dan took over the role of Vineyard Manager in late 2018.
Prior to Silkwood, Dan has been managing/operating his family Vineyard Koomal Creek since settling in the Pemberton region in 2016. With a highly diverse background ranging from construction management to drag racing, Dan brings a fresh approach to the vineyard where he works to grow the regions premier wine grapes. “Great wines begin with quality fruit.” When not in the vineyard, the father of one can often be spotted fly-fishing for trout on a quiet little backwater here in the south west or in his workshop working on one of his classic Holdens.
Malcolm has been with Silkwood since 2011 and has been an integral part of Silkwood’s vineyard. Malcolm has many responsibilities; he can be seen mowing the lawns of our cellar-door, keeping the gardens and driveway beautiful to pruning, harvesting and all general vineyard work.
