It started out with just a few vines to see how they would go. It has developed as a love and passion and a wonderful lifestyle.
Bob had a vision that grapes would ripen on the Eastern slopes of Mt. Gisborne. Turns out he was right. But it takes a lot of care, a lot of patience and a lot of hard work. He loves it! On the other hand, Barbara loves talking. She loves to see people enjoying themselves. Put the two together and voila, you have Gisborne Peak Winery & Eco-Cottages.
Both Bob and Barbara are active in the wine tourism industry and are firm believers in inviting people to share their love of wine and wine education. Bob is a Melbourne-boy, raised in Essendon and a former teacher. Now a financial adviser and viticulturist. Barbara hails from Wisconsin in the States and has been on the property with Bob since 1986. She started Victoria Winery Tours back in 1991, true pioneers in the wine tourism industry.
They have surrounded themselves with hardworking and fun staff. The Gisborne Peak Team is young, old(er), male and female. Some are new others have been working at the winery for quite a few years. It's a good place to work, and it shows.
Most weekends you will find one or both of them at the cellar door talking with guests or in the vineyard (not Barb). Bob will be in his paddock clothes having just got off the tractor. Barbara doesn't own any paddock clothes. What you see at cellar door, what you see with Bob and Barbara, is what you get. No attitude here. They simply don't know how. Authentic, genuine and honest. Come and meet us!
Bob recently did an interview for a wine publication. He answers truthfully and with some witty insight. If you would like to read the transcript of the interview, click here.
