Rolf Binder is an iconic name from the Barossa Valley, known amongst true wine collectors and connoisseurs as a producer of rich Shiraz of cult status. With his sister Christa, Rolf has built up Rolf Binder Wines through consistently high standards and uncompromising wine quality.
Rolf Binder was born at Rose Park in Adelaide to Rolf Heinrich Binder of Hungary and his Austrian wife, Franciska, post-war arrivals to Australia. He spent his schooling at Linden Park Primary School and Concordia College in Unley. An interest in agriculture took him to Roseworthy College where he attained a degree in Agricultural Science, specializing in Oenology.
His relaxation time is spent with his family and friends, sharing food and wine, and giving him an excuse to practice his other passion, cooking. Asian flavours and styles are his interest at present, enhanced by intermittent trips to Malaysia and China to visit wine distributors. Time out is spent reading travel literature, pottering in his vegetable garden or just enjoying life on a sunny day.
