Meet Our Winemaker
Originally from Western Colorado, Dan first became interested in fermentation while homebrewing at Colorado College. After finishing his Bachelor's in chemistry in 2011, Dan headed to California to work at Navarro Vineyards in Anderson Valley, where the process of vinification proved captivating. This led him to the Pacific Northwest, where he completed his Master's in Food Science with an Enology concentration at Oregon State University. Immediately after graduating, he began working at Kevin White Winery in Washington and also produced his own label, Seekseekqua, from organic vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Today we are proud to have Dan as our senior winemaker. Drop by the South Park (Fairplay) location and ask Dan for a behind the scenes tour of our winemaking.
