At Tumblong Hills, we like to think of ourselves as a community within a community. A tapestry of experienced vineyard operators who have honed their craft in some of Southern NSW’s most substantial and progressive wine regions, now working towards a shared idea of creating wine.

The wines we make at Tumblong Hills come with a purpose towards continuous improvement in respect of the fundamentals of nature and future generations.

Simon Robertson has this land in his blood. A second-generation vigneron, Simon is a devoted advocate of sustainable farming with a background in Biodynamics, who truly acknowledges the role soil plays in good winemaking practices. Simon leads the team at Tumblong Hills with a belief that great wines are made in the vineyard and healthy living soils are the backbone to creating those wines. Living Soil : Great Wines!

We’re not here by accident. In conjunction with the katabatic cooling winds from the Snowy Mountains, our carefully planted vineyard sites ensure the wines of Tumblong Hills retain distinctive varietal characters, forged from the vineyard’s rich living volcanic soils, and nearness to nourishing, mountain-derived water.

We pride ourselves on our portfolio, which stays true to the multicultural heritage of our home and the European style of our wines, while challenging the status quo with lesser-known, climate friendly varietals to enjoy with your friends and family on any occasion.

General Manager & Vigneron


Simon has a remarkable ability to harness a vineyard’s terroir and navigate the challenges of each vintage – Tumblong Hills’ premium wines are testament to his finely-honed skills.

Simon was introduced to wine at the age of ten by his father Peter, a pioneering winemaker and viticulturist responsible for establishing the Barwang Winery in the Hilltops region of New South Wales. Simon’s early love of wine led him to pursue studies in viticulture and winemaking, before heading to Europe to discover the likes of Château d’Yquem in Sauternes, France, and Tokaji in Hungary.

After returning to Australia, Simon worked at Barwang, as his father had done, before becoming a pioneer in his own right – Simon was a sought-after consultant and contractor to some of Australia’s major wineries, established and managed his own winery and was awarded WINE Selector Magazine’s Viticulturist of the Year in 2006. Simon currently works on projects in India but mostly he heads up the Tumblong Hills team.
