About the event
Gibson Wines was established in 1996 and draws on over 45 years of experience of its founder; viticulturist, geologist and winemaker, Rob Gibson. Surrounding an 1850s Blacksmith’s cottage, Gibson’s home property in Light Pass – Northern Barossa – features a 5 – acre patch of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Fiano. A portion of these vines are planted under the Gibson-Schulz trellis system, a unique method co-invented by Rob. The vines are alternately planted on a low and high cordon wire, the latter reaching nearly two metres in height.
Light Pass sits slightly elevated from the Barossa Valley floor itself, at approximately 280m above sea level. The land was first surveyed by Colonel William Light who came across it while looking for travel routes between Adelaide and the River Murray. German emigrants in the 1830s and 1840s first planted vineyards in the area, commonly as part of mixed farming of livestock, orchards and cereals. The family also tends to a small old vine vineyard in the Eden Valley, ‘Burkes Hill’, planted to Shiraz and Riesling.
