Why are they so fabulous?
“Real wine, real people, real character” is the rationale behind Rob Dolan Wines. After more than 25 years winemaking for some of Australia’s most respected labels, 2010 was when Rob started his very own, Rob Dolan Wines.
But it’s not all about him! Because at Rob Dolan wines they rely on not one but TWO fabulous female winemakers, Kathy McBride and Han Gao, whose experience and passion allow both women to rise to the challenges that each vintage throws at them.
Rob’s belief in creating wines of real character flows through everything he and his team of fabulous winemakers do. Each wine, therefore, reflects everything they love about the Yarra Valley—bold, generous and exceedingly likeable!
Guests are welcome to drop in for a guided wine-tasting to sample the entire range of wines from friendly and relaxed hosts (often the winemakers themselves!) or make a day of it by sampling the Rob Dolan Wines grazing menu. The selection heroes ‘Stone and Crow’ cheese—made locally and matured onsite at the winery. The sensational handcrafted artisan cow and goat milk cheeses are the perfect accompaniment to Rob’s range of wines. Along with the house-made relishes and pickles, visitors are in for a real treat with a tasty selection of local Yarra Valley produce.
Come, grab a picnic rug, a Bocce set and settle in for an afternoon on the lawn. There’s no rush. A day at Rob Dolan Wines cellar door is a chance to enjoy the region and wine as it’s meant to be.
Open seven days a week for tasting and sales.
