Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

General Manager & Vigneron

SIMON ROBERTSON

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, was awarded WINE Selector Magazine’s Viticulturist of the Year in 2006, worked on projects in India and Russia, and now heads up the Tumblong Hills team.
