Okanagan Crush Pad welcomes Matt Dumayne as new Associate Winemaker.


Date: 03/21/13

Originally from New Zealand, with 25 vintages under his belt crafting award-winning wine in Central Otago, California, Australia, and Oregon, Matt Dumayne brings unparalleled insight and passion to the OCP cellar. Matt works with head winemaker Michael Bartier and the cellar team.

Matt’s past experience in New Zealand included the creation of custom-crush wines for others, as well as his own label, De Vine Wines, which captured critical acclaim, including 96 points and five star reviews from MW Bob Campbell at Gourmet Wine Traveller. Taking advantage of opposing hemisphere’s seasons, Matt has also worked many vintages in Oregon and BC. Adding to this, Matt has experience converting a vineyard to organic and biodynamic farming practices, experience that mirrors the agricultural direction of Okanagan Crush Pad.

When not making wine, Matt can be found with his wife Chelsea and their daughter, who reside with him in Summerland.
