As a child, David Burch accompanied his father on business trips to Asia while also working in a family packaging company at a young age. Along with his siblings and grandparents, Mr Burch even planted some of the early Shiraz vines on the Leston Vineyard. That year, he did his first vintage at the Denmark winery in the Great Southern, processing fruit that went into Howard Park’s Riesling and MadFish wines. Mr Burch has had varied experiences in the family business throughout the years from working in despatch, being a part of several vintages, cellar sales and regional sales, and designing labels. He also plays a large role in the online side of the business and his responsibilities included e-commerce functions and building an online presence via the wider web. Mr Burch is the co-owner of Broomstick Estate Wines in the Southern Margaret River region, a label that he manages with his siblings.
