Gibson Wines is a family owned Barossa Valley winery with over twenty years of history producing premium wines which are unique, scarce and fiercely local.
Rob Gibson as a man is kind, generous and thoughtful. In this age of digital marketing and instant celebrity, Rob, (known to his mates as Gibbo or the Dirtman) is honest and authentic, characteristics that are reflected in each and every one of his wines. Gibbo’s early years travelling the world for Penfolds have given him a breadth of understanding of viticulture and global wine styles which anyone would be lucky to experience.
Under the Gibson label, bright citrussy Eden Valley Riesling sits alongside The Dirtman, a warm, rich and smooth Barossa Shiraz grown from specific vineyards at Kalimna, Light Pass and Saleyards Road. Each vineyard offers special earth, contributing its own stamp of fruit, spice and complexity. Each wine is a Grand Tour of the Barossa, guided by The Dirtman himself.
In recent years Rob with help from son Adam have been successfully experimenting with locally grown Mediterranean varietals under the Discovery Road label. The range offers something unique and different from the norm and is a wonderful accompaniment to pizza, pasta and European cuisine. Look out for Fiano and Nero d’Avola native to Sicily, Tempranillo from Rioja, Montepulciano from Abruzzo or the wonderful iL Minestrone blend (GSM plus these Mediterranean varieties)
