(9/11/2010)

The original vineyards of the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyards were planted in 1870 by Australian gold miners working in western Victoria. The vines were transplanted from Europe and thrived in the rich terroir of Victoria. By the turn of the century, the grape vines succumb to sheep pastures and were only returned to wine culture in 1963 by Fratin brothers who were dedicated Italian wine-makers.

Wines that are known for their spicy, peppery complex qualities will be the focus on the Mount Langi Ghiran Wine Dinner at Spice on Monday, September 20, 2010 with wine-maker Dan Buckle in attendance.

Buckle joined Mount Langi Ghiran in 2003 already in possession of a great breadth of wine making experience garnered both in Australia and abroad.

The son of two psychoanalysts, Dan's love of wine making began in the early 1980s at a family-planted vineyard near Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. This early experience helped Dan first develop an interest in wine. In the late eighties and early nineties, Dan spent several years traveling in Europe as a member of the Australian fencing team (1989-1990) before returning to Melbourne University to complete an Arts (French/Italian/Classics) degree with Honors in 1993. During these years Dan began working in hospitality, finding himself increasingly interested in wine.

A well-rounded man interested in fencing, classical Latin and medieval Italian poetry, Buckle determined to find a more financially rewarding career, eventually turned to viticulture. In 1995, Dan began a Bachelor of Applied Science (Wine) at Charles Sturt University. In 1997, he was granted a Bursarship through the University to travel to Bordeaux, and under took a vintage with Ch. Carsin in the Premiere Côtes de Bordeaux. Here he assisted in the making of Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as a small amount of Appellation Cadillac.

After finishing University in 1997, Dan began work at Coldstream Hills in the Yarra Valley. Working as assistant winemaker to James Halliday he gained invaluable experience and was exposed to many of the great wines of the world thanks to this distinguished mentor. Through the attention to detail in this prestigious winery, and the exposure to so many of the world's greatest wines, Dan was able to develop an ambitious and aspiring approach to making Australia's finest wines, both in the Yarra Valley and now at Mount Langi Ghiran.

In 1999 after two vintages at Coldstream Hills, Dan joined the team at Yering Station. It was in his first year at Yering Station that Dan worked vintage at Champagne Devaux, partners in the Yarra Valley winery's sparkling wine venture - Yarrabank.

In 2001, he returned to France working with Yves Confuron at Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot in Vosne Romanee and at Domaine de Courcel in Pommard. On arrival at Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot, Jacques Confuron declared Dan to be an Australian spy – un espion Australien – the beginnings of a strained relationship which was nonetheless fruitful and brought new ideas and techniques to both sides of the equation.

In mid-2003, Dan joined Mount Langi Ghiran which had been acquired by the Rathbone Family in late 2002. Since 2004 Dan has been involved in wine judging, as Associate Judge at The Macquarie Bank Sydney Royal Wine.
