Background

The Winemaker Selection celebrates the winemaker who has made this winery the outstanding producer that it is! The inauguarl release paid tribute to the first winemaker - Gerry Sissingh. He has been an active participant in the Hunter Valley since 1960 when he worked for Lindemans with his involvement with the Rothbury Winery being since the first vintage in 1971, in fact before the winery was built. He is an active champion of Hunter Valley wines, especially Semillon and Shiraz, believing them to be the quintessential Australian wine styles.
