CHIEF WINEMAKER – SIMON GILBERT

"Winemaking is not entirely based on a scientific approach but surety. The ability to ensure the best fruit, the best oak and attention to detail in the entire production process will eventuate in a product that will always over deliver in quality. Joining the passionate team at Robertson of Clare Wines, of Clare Valley wine growers and distinguished French cooperages will only make these objectives easier to achieve". (Simon Gilbert)
