David Ireland | Cellar Door Host

David Ireland – Cellar Door Host

Born in Dunedin, David has spent many years living in the South Island and then onto a life in the big Sydney metropolis. 

But for David, skiing always felt more natural than paddling around as shark bait. So, David returned from across the ditch with family in tow, to enjoy life back in Central with bountiful, crisp whites and fine, silky red wines.

David has been putting in the hard graft at local Gibbston & Bendigo vineyards from the early 2000s and can still be found out there on the odd occasion. He has an abundance of local knowledge, so if you find yourself on the Rockburn Cellar Door, let him fill you in on the magic of Central Otago and the wines that we make here.
