Daren OwersChief WineMaker, Nugan Estate
There is a good reason Daren Owers is seen as one of Australia’s up and coming young winemakers. His wines are good, very good.
Since becoming Chief Winemaker, Daren has collected numerous Trophies from around the world. He was also the 2004 Wine Society’s Young Wine Maker of the Year (Member Choice).
Many are shocked to know Daren was only 26 when he was first appointed Nugan Estate’s Chief Winemaker. But those who know Daren, are aware he is a talented man, mature beyond his years, who has been mentored by Nugan Estate’s Managing Director, Michelle Nugan, since joining the business at the age of 19.
Now responsible for all Nugan Estate’s labels, Daren’s vision is to continue producing quality wines utilising premium fruit from the family’s vineyards in McLaren Vale, King Valley and Riverina and sourced from Coonawarra.
