THE ROSABROOK STORY

The Rosa Brook was originally home to a small number of group settlement farmers who pioneered the dairy industry in Margaret River in the 1930’s. Many of the isolated clearings they struggled to tame are now home to some of the region’s prime vineyards. Rosabrook Wines was one of the first wine producing pioneers of the Margaret River wine region. Owned by Calneggia Family Vineyards, the winemaking philosophy, carefully guided by the Calneggia family and winemaker Brian Fletcher, is to create elegant, fruit driven wines.

THE WINEMAKER

Rosabrook’s Winemaker is the highly talented Brian Fletcher. Brian studied oenology at Charles Sturt University and began his career in winemaking in 1978 in Australia. Brian is an extremely versatile winemaker with a multitude of awards to his name. He is one of Margaret River’s most acclaimed wine makers with over thirty years of experience making wine all over the world. He has held a number of prestigious winemaking positions including Production Director for Casa Vinicola Calatrasi in Sicily and Chief winemaker for Evans & Tate. Although he is a household name in Margaret River and a veteran winemaker for the region, he is somewhat of a quiet achiever and prefers to stay out of the limelight and in the vineyard with his beloved vines.

THE VINEYARDS

The spiritual home of Rosabrook Wines is the Rosabrook Estate vineyard located in the hamlet of Rosa Brook some 14 kilometres from the Margaret River Township. This vineyard grows most of the white varietals and produces wines with elegance and finesse. We also source fruit from our other vineyards located in both the north and south of the Margaret River wine region.

THE ROSABROOK WINES

Rosabrook Wines produces a number of premium, classic Margaret River wine varietals and blends including Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Merlot. Rosabrook also produces Shiraz and Tempranillo which are less well known varietals for Margaret River.

THE SINGLE VINEYARD ESTATE WINES

The Rosabrook Single Vineyard Wines are made from hand picked fruit and matured in top quality French or American oak. These wines are bottle aged for 18 months prior to release and have long term cellaring potential.

CALNEGGIA FAMILY VINEYARDS
