Meet our Wine Shop Manager, Giles...
Meet our Wine Shop Manager, Giles!
This friendly face is one of the guys you often find working in our tasting room.
How did you become the wine shop manager at Rollingdale?
Giles: I worked in the vineyard all summer fighting with...I mean tending to the vines. In Fall 2015, I was offered this position, and was only too happy to continue with the team here.
Best part about your job?
Working at a winery?....DUH!!! But seriously, I get a chance to learn and experience all aspects of the operation from vineyard management, through wine making, to wine distribution.
Your favourite wine?
Our Blanc de Merlot. There is a nasty rumour that I still have some at home. NOT TRUE!!
Why would you recommend Rollingdale Winery ?
You get to try some of the cleanest and finest wines around, and usually there is something unique as well. In addition, you often get to talk to our winemaker, Steve, personally.
Best time or days to visit the winery?
We are here 7 days a week...there is always something that needs to be done either in the cellar or in the vineyard. Best time is when you feel like dropping by...there is no bad time to enjoy wine. Of course it is a lot warmer April to October, but in the off-season it's a lot easier for us to give every visitor a little extra attention because it isn't so busy.
