The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Rob Dolan has been making wine in the Yarra Valley for over 20 years, and knows every nook and cranny there. In 2011 he was able to purchase the Hardys Yarra Burn winery at an enticing price. It is singularly well equipped, and as well as making the excellent Rob Dolan wines there, he carries on an extensive contract winemaking business. Business is booming, production having doubled, with exports driving much of the increase. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.
