He started his vineyard career at 15, working for small producers around his family home in Waurn Ponds, Geelong. In 2005, Dylan started a bachelor’s degree in Oenology and Viticulture, which was the start of a whirlwind 5 years that would lead him through three different universities and 5 vintages in Australia, New Zealand and Canada culminating with a permanent move to Margaret River and the completion of his studies. While working full time in Margaret river over the next 6 years with Juniper Estate Dylan took time off for vintages in the northern hemisphere working in Bordeaux and also Italy while travelling through the wine regions of Portugal, Spain and The United States. While working as the Winemaker for Cape Grace Wines (2012 - Present) and still at Juniper Estate, LS Merchants was conceived and consequentially founded in 2015 with a focus on unique vineyard sites, organic viticulture and alternate grape varieties. Oak has always been a very integral part of their winemaking process and he looks forward to working with Kirk and his great range of products that he is bringing into Western Australia.
