“Dan Standish is an extremely experienced winemaker, adding work in the Napa and Sonoma valleys in California, La Rioja in Spain and the Rhône Valley in France to his domestic winemaking” James Halliday
From a prolific sixth generation Barossa Valley grape growing family, Dan knows a thing or two about vines and the vineyards of the region. Harvest stints in California’s Napa and Sonoma valleys, La Rioja and Yecla in Spain coupled with extensive travel and study of France’s Rhône Valley reinforce his intricate local knowledge with a diverse international bent.
The Standish Wine Company cellar and barrel store are intimately designed to fully embrace and nurture the individuality afforded by clone, soil and aspect. Tiny open-top oak fermentation vats allow single parcels – even single rows – to be vinified separately, enhancing the intricate personality of each specific soil profile.
