As part of Accolade Wines’ ongoing growth strategy and commitment to the Barossa and South Australian wine region, Rolf Binder Wines is in safe hands.
Rolf Binder Wines has a rich history in the South Australian wine industry. From humble beginnings in 1955, the company has produced a portfolio of highly acclaimed wines, such as the Bulls Blood and Hanisch Shiraz.
Rolf Binder and his wife Franziska first made the company after immigrating to South Australia from Hungary with his family, and after stepping down from the business to live a happy retirement, the company was handed down to his children, Rolf Binder Jr and Christa Deans.
Rolf Binder Wines joins the long list of South Australian companies that Accolade Wines has acquired, joining the likes of Banrock Station, Katnook Estate, Petaluma, Hardy’s Wines, and Berri Estates.
Robert Foye, Accolade Wines Chief Executive Officer, is feeling extremely positive about this new acquisition.
“We are delighted to bring a business with such legacy and deep experience in the Barossa Valley as Rolf Binder into the Accolade Wines family.”
“We are focused on sustainably growing the future of our amazing brands, the wine industry around the world and the communities in which we work. We continue to support our core global brands and work with partners in each market to respond to the demand, increasing access of quality wine to wine lovers everywhere.”
Rolf Binder Jr is also happy to share the news. “This announcement is also great news for the Barossa and this additional investment will continue to support the Barossa’s profile as a leading global wine region.”
