Torbreck Wines

While working at Rockford Wines in 1994, David Powell discovered and began to clean up a few parcels of old, dry-grown vines. Near lifeless, he slowly nurtured them back to health and was rewarded when a couple of the plots began producing enough fruit that he could start experimenting with his own ideas on wine production.

Starting in 1995, David was able to harvest and crush a total of three tonnes of grapes, carefully fermenting them in his make-shift winery, a simple shed on his 12-hectare Marananga property. The winery was named “Torbreck” after the forest in Scotland where Powell had previously worked as a lumberjack, with the resulting wine christened “RunRig”. From this point on David’s ambition and determination was clear. He departed Rockford and began securing further contracts for the supply of fruit from some of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in the world.
