Miles Dinneen went to school over the back fence of the vineyard but is originally from Hawkes Bay and has been in the wine industry for more than twenty years. Miles is having a great time with this years harvest and is very impressed with the fruit quality.
As a winemaker he has received many high-profile accolades including most recently the Best Syrah in the World (International Wine Challenge, 2018), showing the Aussies how it is done! He has also received the Six Nations Wine Awards Best Red Blend (2016), Best New Zealand Chardonnay (Decanter World Wine Awards, 2016), Best New Zealand Red Wine (International Wine Challenge, 2014) and Best NZ Red Varietal (Decanter World Wine Awards, 2013).
When not making wine, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, painting, hunting, hiking and travelling. Also fascinated with rainbows!
