Dan captains the Chandon ship with poise and aplomb – his attention to detail is on show in every sip of a Chandon wine.
Is there beauty in wine? Dan Buckle believes so. One of his chief tasks as Chandon’s Senior Winemaker is to conjure beauty in the bottle – wine has to be delicious. Simple as that. The importance of blending is paramount, and he draws on the traditions of Chandon’s esteemed French heritage to achieve this poise and elegance.
Dionysus is in Dan’s blood, beginning with his father’s own vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula where he roped in Dan to plant, prune and pick throughout his teenage years, and beyond. Dan jumped into the wine retail market, then studied for a Bachelor of Applied Science in Wine. It’s a tale of wanderlust from there, moving between vintages in Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, and time spent at Coldstream Hills, Yering Station and Mount Langi Ghiran.
