We are extremely fortunate to have Daniel Binet as our talented winemaker.
Born in Efate Vanuatu, Daniel immigrated to Australia in the late 80’s to complete his schooling, after which he left for Europe to explore his French heritage. Upon completing vintages abroad Daniel returned to Australia to become a qualified winemaker.
Most of Daniel’s life has been dedicated to the growing, cultivation and making wine. He has a natural palate for wine, which allows him to create wines with personality, structure and finesse. He has an enormous ability to de-mystify the world of wine in a natural and engaging manner.
Daniel has been a winemaker for over 17 years in the Hunter Valley wine region of New South Wales, Australia. With a host of nominations under his belt including The Wine Society’s Young Winemaker of the Year, Hunter Valley Rising Star and The Hunter Wine Excellence scholarship, Daniel is fast becoming one of the Hunter Valley’s most recognized young winemakers.
Daniel has extensive wine show judging experience, regionally, nationally and regularly travels internationally to judge, including to Shanghai and New Zealand.
