Who We are…
Danial Conte is the 3rd generation in the family business. He has worked full time in his parents vineyards for over 20 years. In his younger days he spent hundreds of hours helping out in between school, and operating all types of vineyard machinery including a mechanical harvester from age 12.
His life long involvement and dedication later included winemaking. From the year 2000 completed 2 years of full time science and winemaking (oenology) at universities of Flinders and Adelaide. Now at age 45, his love of the outdoors, passion and ability for winemaking and strong commitment to his work, family and their lively-hood has become a great assett to the business.
He has a lifetime of practical experience, a keen sense for detail and a desire for learning which has led to him being a consistently exceptional and humble young winemaker.
Winery owner and Danial’s father, Modestino (Steve) Conte, is a 2nd generation Conte in McLaren Vale. He contributes to the winemaking but mostly on an advisory level. At age 82, he keeps Danial in touch with the traditional Italian methods, resulting in wines that have a ‘blend’ of both Old and New World wine making influences.
