Meet the Winemaker
Winemaker and farmer Daniel Sanft grew up in Vancouver enjoying life by the Pacific Ocean until meeting his wife, who brought him home to the Atlantic Ocean. A love of farming and winemaking has filled his days for the past 40 years. Dan is a well-read, well-travelled, and primarily self-trained man with a lifetime of hands-on experience. He is an invaluable, one-of-a-kind pioneer of Nova Scotia winemaking. Dan believes in 100% Nova Scotia-grown fruit and estate grape wines (100% Lunenburg County grapes). He has won many awards and medals for his winemaking over the years.
