At Rocky Ridge we employ the services of renowmed winemaker Tim Geddes.
Tim and his wife Amanda, a trained chef, bring considerable experience to the food and wine game. Tim began his career in 1992 in his hometown of Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand with three vintages as a cellar hand. The enjoyment of this experience and his curiosity led him to move directly to Australia where he completed the Oenology degree at Adelaide University.
Dual vintages in the Barossa and Hunter Valley were woven between settling down in coastal McLaren Vale, where he has been a contract winemaker since 2002.
By 2007 Tim leased a 500 ton winery which has become the home base for making his clients’ wines. His wines have been awarded 12 trophies and countless medals.
To say that Tim Geddes is an interesting character would be an understatement. With making wines from the Old Maxwells Winery (that is now owned by Scarpontoni) he has developed a number of wine making gigs as a contractor and just for fun he makes his own wine as well.
