In Detail

Principal Robert Bond has always been around grapes, growing up on a horticultural property on the Murray River (80km from Mildura). He might have stayed there too, becoming a shearer like his father, if not for a mother who determinedly pushed her son to seek a profession. Robert pursued medicine in WA, before purchasing the first RiverBank site in 1991 and ù deciding he needed to know more about winemaking ù completed an applied science course in 1998. The range includes sparkling wines made from Chardonnay, Cabernet and Shiraz, and also a fortified port and muscat.
