Overview

THE REDMAN FAMILY’S ASSOCIATION WITH COONAWARRA BEGAN IN 1901 WHEN BILL REDMAN ARRIVED AND GAINED EMPLOYMENT IN JOHN RIDDOCH’S WINERY. BY 1908 BILL DECIDED TO PURCHASE A VINEYARD AND MAKE WINE HIMSELF. Owen Redman joined his father in 1937, and while the reputation of their wines continued to grow it was not until 1952 that the Redman family bottled wine under their own label “Rouge Homme”. In 1965 Rouge Homme was sold to Lindeman Wines. Owen Redman immediately bought a small vineyard from Arthur Hoffman, and in 1966 started Redman Wines. The current winery was completed for the 1969 vintage. Owen’s sons Bruce and Malcolm started working in the winery in 1981, and are still currently running the business. They were joined by Bruce’s sons Daniel in 2008 and Michael in 2015. Today, Redman’s continue to make wine using many of the traditional techniques, such as hand pruning and open fermentation, learned through four generations of winemaking, to produce handcrafted wines ready to drink now, and with the potential to age for many years. At Redman’s we have 84 acres of vineyard planted to 3 varieties, Shiraz (55.5 acres), Cabernet Sauvignon (25 acres) and Merlot (3.5 acres) in Coonawarra.

Low-key tasting set-up; friendly, welcoming, no-fee tastings by one of the family who makes the wine.

Quite rundown compared to other cellar doors. All the wines seemed to have been opened for a few days distracting from what could be some nice wines

Redman wines are quality at a reasonable price. Still use cork and the reds are very good. Cellar door is old and is basically the office. I think they devote all there time to producing quality wines. Very old winery Definitely recommend for the reds

A massive thanks to Mal for spending so much time answering all our questions form what MOG meant on the picker to what a claret would be now days. Great wines in good old Coonawarra style produced by a family business

This was the only winery where the attendant was willing to talk about the wines. Vertical tastings are available for both the shiraz and the cabs. Excellent wines.

For good or for bad this is exactly how I remember tasting rooms in the sixties. Just a plain room with the wines set out and a friendly person behind the counter. Very personal and enjoyable. And great reds too!
