Originally from South Africa, he earned a degree in enology and pomology from The University of Stellenbosh before producing wines for various wineries throughout the world including South Africa, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, California, Missouri, and Texas.

Working in different environments and using a vast range of machinery has given Dane the experience to build a state of the art winery and the confidence to bring lesser-known grape varietals to the forefront.
