Our People

Dan Sullivan

Winewriter David Lawrason of Toronto Life had this to say about Rosehall Run owner/viticulturist and winemaker:  "Dan Sullivan is as adept at fixing a pump motor as he is at describing the nectarine aroma in the chardonnays grown in his Prince Edward County vineyard.  A five-minute conversation might also touch on marketing, cooling systems, raising teenagers and politics."

As a leader in Prince Edward County's wine region, Dan works with both local and international chefs, restaurateurs and fellow winemakers to raise the profile of Ontario's thriving local food and wine community.  Dan is a member of the Wine Council of Ontario Board of Directors, a member of the Advisory Committee for the Algonquin College Sommelier Certificate Program in Ottawa and a Certified Judge with the Wine Judges of Canada.

The wines he produces at Rosehall Run are a reflection of Dan's dedication to the vineyard.  He maintains a hands-on approach to managing the vineyard staff, monitoring the weather and its effects, and using gentle, environmentally sound grape farming techniques that extract the optimum from the unique Prince Edward County terroir.  As a result, Dan has been acknowledged as being one of the best grape growers and winemakers in Ontario.
