About Us

winemaking with friends

After 19 years in the wine industry Rob Turnbull was getting tired and frustrated. He dreamed of spending his days creating interesting wines from different regions with the people who mean the most to him.

So in June 2017 he quit his job at one of Australia’s biggest wineries and started his own endeavour, focusing on small batch South Australian wines made with his winemaking mates.

Remarkable State Wines was born.

South Australia

our home is our muse

Luckily where we live, South Australia, is a remarkable place. It has a unique history, stunning landscape and is home to many of Australia’s finest wine regions.

Rob now works with his friends, incredible grape growers and winemakers who are obsessed with detail and are energised by making delicious wines.

The brief is simple – make wines we’d happily serve at our own dinner table, true to variety and distinctly South Australian.

These winemakers include Tom White who has a boutique winery in the Marananga sub region of the Barossa Valley and who has been friends with Rob since the 1990s.

Rob Turnbull moved from England to Australia in 1997 after working a vintage at a Barossa Valley winery…and falling in love Barossa Valley girl.

He’s been in the wine industry ever since, first studying wine and then working with wineries both large and small.

For Rob, Remarkable State Wines is about spending quality time with his mates in this remarkable land, creating something that then brings enjoyment to others.
