Overview

“Vintage 2016 will be long remembered as the most compact growing season in living memory. A warm spring

was followed by a warmer than average Summer but luckily we were spared from suffering through too many

extreme over-40 degree spikes during the ripening period. The effect of this weather forced an acceleration of

ripening but also a retention of fresh acidity due to the cool nights. It’s not surprising then to see ripe, generous

characters on the 2016 wines”. Mark Nikolich - Senior Winemaker

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Rob Dolan has been making wine in the Yarra Valley for over 20 years. He has an outstanding winemaking record and has played a pivotal role in the evolution of the Yarra Valley.

Rob’s first experience in the Yarra Valley was as senior Winemaker at Yarra Ridge Winery, one of the success stories of the 90’s and the benchmark Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of its time. During this time Rob managed the entire Victorian Winemaking operation for Mildara Blass (Fosters).Rob went on to build two more contract winemaking ventures and in doing so launched two highly successful Yarra Valley brands – Sticks and Punt Road. (“Sticks” being Rob’s nickname as a premiership ruckman with Port Adelaide Football Club… don’t hold that against him!)

In 2011 Rob purchased the former Hardy’s Yarra Burn winery and launched the Rob Dolan range of wines.

Rob is a well known Yarra Valley identity (he’s hard to miss) and arguably one of the most experienced Winemaker in the region.
