Fourth generation takes a share of Coonawarra winery

The Redman family have been involved in the wine business in South Australia’s Coonawarra wine region since 1908, first growing grapes, then making exceptional shirazes and later cabernet sauvignons. 

Family owned and operated, the business is now run by third and fourth generation vignerons Mal, Bruce, Dan and Mike Redman after fourth-generation pair Dan and Mike Redman this week purchased a share of the business.
 

The Coonawarra-born brothers aim to ensure the future of the Redman brand in Coonawarra for years to come. 

Back in 1908, Bill Redman purchased his first vineyard in Coonawarra. 

His son Owen took over in 1937 with his own vision and his sons Bruce and Mal also followed in their father’s footsteps and in 1982 took on the responsibility for winemaking. 

Dan joined the business in 2008, exactly 100 years after his great-grandfather made his first wine, and Mike came on board in 2015. 

Both have honed their skills at other wineries including, Wynns Coonawarra, Tahbilk and Charles Melton.

“I’ve never known anything else other than being in a family wine business and I’m proud to be able to be part of the Redman history of winemaking," said Dan Redman. 

"Buying into the business ensures that the brand retains the family name and vision well into the future. Both Mike and I are incredibly proud of the family’s role in Coonawarra."

This year sees the family celebrates 50 years of producing Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.

The new-release 2017 cabernet sauvignon is the first vintage bottled under screw cap.
