I'm fourth generation of my family to be involved in the wine business. I cut my teeth with some of the wine making greats both here and in the Hunter Valley, including a number of years working alongside my father at Rockford Wines. All of this experience and knowledge convinced me that I wanted to make quality wine that represented the Barossa, its soils and its seasonal variations.

So I’ve spent the last 6 years rebuilding old vineyards, planting new ones and making my wine. I pruned, picked, fermented, pressed and labelled this wine with my own hands. Because I have aged the wine in my cellar for 6 years it’s showing real bottle age and is drinking beautifully at the moment. My goal is to continue to make high quality aged Barossa wine and sell it to a small group of loyal customers.

The name "Diggers Bluff" came about because I happen to own the world’s greatest dog, he was born on Anzac day, so I named him Digger, together we live on a windy bluff over-looking Seppeltsfield vineyards. There is only small quantities of this wine, with the next 5 vintages safely in the cellar. Although I will be adding to this label, "Watchdog" will always be a rare and special wine.

It has been a long and rewarding journey making this wine; I hope you get as much pleasure from drinking it.
