Bob Richter has three passions in life – wine, gardening and ancient history. And he manages to combine all of them in one overriding passion, Grey Sands Vineyard. Bob and his wife Rita have a holistic approach to grapevine growing, which has developed over 30 years.
After living in England and researching European winegrowing regions in the early 1980s, the Richters eventually settled on the western edge of the Tamar Valley in northern Tasmania.
“Our vineyard site was chosen because of its aspect, slope and low fertility soil. Barrel samples of pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon from the nearby Glengarry Vineyard, when owned by Gavin Scott, showed the colour, tannin and body that we were seeking,” say the Richters.
