Dana Estates promoted Cameron Vawter to winemaker on Jan. 28. Philippe Melka is continuing as director of winemaking for the Rutherford-based cabernet house.

Vawter previously was director of production at Dana, and was the winery’s first employee in 2005. He has been a part of Dana’s winemaking team since the winery’s inception and he oversaw the construction of the Howard Backen-designed winery, completed in 2008. Along with Melka, Vawter crafted both the 2007 and 2010 Lotus Vineyard cabernet sauvignons, both of which received 100-point scores in The Wine Advocate.
