Mark Sheridan


Born and raised in the Barossa Valley in Australia, and after earning a Bachelor of Agriculture Science at Adelaide University, Mark went on to work for some of Australia’s largest wine producers. Mark was attracted to BC, as he saw the Okanagan as the world’s next wine frontier, so in 1999, he moved to Canada to be director of vineyard operations for Vincor Canada. He was recognized for his talents and called “a rising star in a young industry”. Now, as Hester Creek’s President, Mark oversees all aspects of the winery’s business, from viticulture through to the finished wines and then into the marketplace.
