Gibson Wines

Gibson Wines

Gibson Wines was established in 1996 and draws on over 45 years of experience of its founder; viticulturist, geologist and winemaker, Rob Gibson.

Rob – with wife Anne and son Adam – uphold a ‘wine growing’ philosophy. A belief deeply rooted in an understanding of the relationship between vineyards, their cycle of growth and maximising flavour intensity in resultant wines.

During his years studying at Roseworthy College and later as head of the first viticultural department of Penfolds, Rob’s passion for wine growing and geology led him to be known as ‘The Dirtman’.

The Dirtman moniker continues with Gibson, as does the pursuit for maximising flavour.

Often lost in an age of digital marketing and instant celebrity, Rob and family hold true to authenticity and down-to-earth character. A profound simplicity exists in viewing Gibson and their Barossa home as means of inspiring comfort and connection through wine.
