Struan is our cheerful and enthusiastic vineyard manager. Struan meticulously cares for our 2.2ha vineyard overseeing and managing all aspects of the vine and soil health to allow the vines to express their voice through fruit.
Nothing is ever a problem for Struan. You will find him scaling the slopes of our hillside vineyards pruning all 23,000 vines himself in the winter, to weeding all the blocks, lateral thing, bunch thinning and hand picking/desteeming. Struan treats every vine as an individual with meticulous care and attention to detail while supported by biodynamics inputs and practices. Struan comes to us with a diverse background in sales, tour operations and Horticulture and in all parts of our small operation at Pyramid Valley.
Over the past four years Pyramid Valley has created a youth work program managed by Struan. All students are taught skills needed in viticulture from bud burst to Pruning. Students are found in our local community and have an early start to hands on work experience while working with groups of all ages.
