Dave Appleton


Dave is a ‘jack of all trades’ and joined our team as Chief Handyman to maintain the winery and the gardens. His job entails a variety of tasks and he is the master of innovation when challenged with a job. It might be hard to catch him as he moves from one job to the next but if you do, he is always happy to chat. Being a walking encyclopaedia, he will talk to you about his passions, current affairs and has a great sense of humour. Growing up in New Zealand before moving to Tamborine Mountain, he has been a local for many years now, knowing all the mountain folk by name. He’s drawn to coffee, apricot delights and will never refuse an after-lunch choccy.
