About the Winery:
In 1913, eager to expand his flourishing family business, EJ Roberts recognised that the soil and the climate of the region were well suited for viticulture. Foiled by the local railway in his attempt to lease a block of land, Roberts went straight to the Chairman of Railway Commissioners.

As his diary relates: “After quite a friendly all-round talk…he told the engineer to let me have it.”

Murray Darling is Australia’s second-largest wine region, home to a diverse range of wine styles, activities and a vibrant food scene. Under the guidance of winemaker Pia Merrick, all the fruit was harvested through the cool nights and quickly processed after picking in order to retain the all-important freshness and varietal fruit characters which define the Commissioner’s Block range.
