Simple & Memorable Is The Motto We Live By

Life in the winemaking industry began in 1990 with a small planting of shiraz grapes on our first property – Metcalfe Valley.  Some first successes in winemaking encouraged us to broaden our horizons and in 2003 we purchased Rowanston.

Today we sell our wine to local outlets, restaurants and hotels as well as exporting into China, Singapore.

Our Cellar door is open seven  days where you are  guaranteed to meet the winemaker (John) or the viticulturist (Marilyn) and enjoy wine tastings along with s some friendly conversation around life at Rowanston. You will also be able to take a stroll through the winery and enjoy some barrel tastings or stay the night in our cosy bed and breakfast.
