Rolf Binder Wines are made with the philosophy of only using primarily estate-grown fruit from our own vineyards across the Barossa, combined with traditional viticultural and winemaking techniques. Resulting in a range of highly acclaimed Barossa premium wines.
STEEPED IN THE BAROSSA
A winery steeped in tradition and Barossa history, Rolf Binder Wines was established in 1955 by Rolf Heinrich Binder along with his wife, Franziska. With the philosophy of only using primarily estate-grown fruit from their own vineyards across the Barossa. Traditional viticultural and winemaking techniques were a legacy that Rolf Binder Jr and his sister Christa Deans carried over 65 years, producing a range of highly acclaimed Barossa premium wines.
Today, the Rolf Binder Wines philosophy continues to drive the essence of the range, in the expert hands of our Barossa winemaking team.
With balance and structure, our wines have a distinct character. Our Barossa vineyards and our home in the Barossa deserve to be tasted by you because we believe in them.
Born in a small Portuguese town in the magical Douro Valley, Paulo grew up surrounded by vineyards and farmland.
The love for the family vineyards pushed him into learning more about the industry. He studied Viticulture and Oenology, which included experience working in small to large wineries during vintage. The passion for wine did not fade so a degree in Oenology was followed at the University of Tras-os-Montes e Alto Douro in Portugal.
Paulo's attention to detail, work ethic and passion for all things wine led him to work on multiple wineries in the Douro Valley. He made Port and table wine while still producing small batch wines at his parents' boutique winery. The ambition to learn about different wine styles and a very adventurous spirit saw him travel to the Barossa Valley in 2016. He joined the Rolf Binder Winemaking team in 2021 and is honoured to be working with some amazing vineyards and crafting such special wines.
