The yarra valley
Our aim is simple. To craft wine that reflects
the unique magic of the Yarra Valley.
A life in wine
After 25 years of making wine for some of Australia’s most iconic wineries, our fearless leader (and local legend!) Rob, made the decision to channel his creative energy into his own label. And so, Rob Dolan Wines was born.
Rob’s belief in creating wines of real character flows through everything we do. Our wine, therefore, is a reflection of everything we love about our home in the Yarra Valley – bold, generous and exceedingly likeable—a bit like the man himself!
“WINE, PEOPLE, CHARACTER”

It takes a village
We are wine-makers, wine-incubators and wine-collaborators. We are not limited to any one patch of dirt. Instead our strong and enduring relationships with regional growers allow us to select the best possible parcels of fruit. And then we do justice to the fruit by creating the most complete, mouth-filling, delicious wines possible.
OUR HOME IS WHERE OUR HEART IS
Our home in the Yarra Valley is both where our wine is created and one of the best places to enjoy it. Just a short 30-minute drive from the buzzing energy of Melbourne CBD, our winery and cellar door in South Warrandyte is a perfect introduction to the sweeping beauty of the region.
THE ROB DOLAN FAMILY
We’ve got a pretty great bunch of people here at Rob Dolan Wines. A collection of different characters from different backgrounds but with one unified passion—our love of making and sharing great wine.
