In 1908, Bill and his family purchased forty acres of vineyard in Coonawarra. He sold the 1908 vintage grapes to the Riddoch winery, to help pay for the block. Bill made his first wine in 1909, in very rudimentary conditions. He sold all the wine in bulk to other wine companies. In 1937, Owen Redman joined his father in the family winemaking business. They continued to sell their wine to other wineries, however, the reputation of their wines continued to grow and demand their wine was keen. The Redman family continue to grow grapes and make wine in the traditions initiated by Bill Redman 100 years ago, and with the next generation in place, this tradition and family success looks certain to continue for many years to come.
