Overview

The highly acclaimed Frogmore Creek wines are from the genuine cool-climate of southern Tasmania, where our sustainably grown grapes benefit from a long growing season. These slowly-ripened grapes develop pure fruit flavours, fresh natural acidity and are perfect for making seriously good wine.

Subtle lime and floral aromas with lively citrus and mineral flavours. Juicy cool climate acid fills the mouth and lingers.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Frogmore Creek is a Pacific Rim joint venture, the owners being Tony Scherer of Tasmania and Jack Kidwiler of California. The business has grown very substantially by first establishing its own organically managed vineyard, and thereafter by a series of acquisitions. First was the purchase of the Hood/Wellington Wines business previously owned by Andrew Hood; next was the purchase of the large Roslyn Vineyard near Campania; and finally (in October 2010) the acquisition of Meadowbank Estate, where the cellar door is now located.

Alain Rousseau hails from an old vigneron family in Vallet of the Loire Valley region of France. He was formally trained at the prestigious Dijon University of Burgundy, before returning to the Loire to work at Château du Cléray.

In 1991 Alain and his wife moved to Tasmania, joining the local wine industry at its infancy. For a decade he worked with Domaine A and Moorilla Estate, gaining many accolades for his Tasmanian wines.

After four year sojourn at Sirromet winery in Southern Queensland, Alain returned to Tasmania in 2004 to work with Frogmore Creek, developing and refining their wine styles.
