3drops is fortunate in having a consistent team since the intial planting of our vineyards in 1999 and the release of our first 3drops wine in 2001. The quality of our fruit and the growing conditons in the pristine Great Southern ensure success, but it is our team that ensures we creat wines of exceptional quality and character.
Rob Diletti Winemaker
Rob has been making 3drops wines since our 2003 vintage at his family vineyard in the Porongurups.
Rob's enthusiasm for making wines that are fruit driven, distinctly varietal and truly reflect the vineyard site, has enabled 3drops to achieve a reputation as a consistent quality producer.
Wine Show judging has played an important part for Rob in staying abreast of current developments in the industry, He continues to be a very sought after senior wine judge.
