Training helped Daniel fast-track his career

“Take every opportunity you can” is the motto Daniel Warman lives by.

That belief, along with the 27 year-old’s endless enthusiasm, will likely see him continue to rise through the ranks of Marlborough’s viticulture industry.

He was recently promoted to block manager at Castle Cliffs vineyard and is now responsible for running the 150ha property on behalf of owner Constellation Brands. He oversees four fulltime staff and 10 RSE workers during peak times and is loving the new challenge.

“I’m enjoying the responsibility of making sure everything happens on time and the staff have everything they need. I didn’t expect a promotion quite so soon but the position became available and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to apply. Turns out I was the most qualified for the job.”

His new role is a far cry from where he was just three years ago.
