Robin Brockett has spent over 35 years striving to perfect the art of winemaking, since 1988 as Chief Winemaker at Scotchmans Hill
Winemaking is an art and a large part of that art is understanding the beauty and complexity deeply rooted in the vines from which the wine originates from. Winemakers are working with a natural product and as such, face a new challenge each and every vintage. The process is just as exciting as it is demanding, especially when Robin Brockett assembles grapes from local growers. Each and every vintage is a new challenge. No two vineyards are the same and that is where winemaking is so much fun. There is nothing like taking the grapes and appreciating their particular nuances to bring out the artisan in a winemaker.
