James Robson

Owner - Ross Hill Wine Group

Working in the wine industry is a natural combination of James Robson’s love of the land and his skill set in hospitality, and is a great formula for running a successful wine business that produces exceptional quality cool climate wines.

James began his working life as a Jackeroo on sheep and cattle farms in Northwest NSW. After 7 years in the saddle, he decided to take on a new career opportunity which took him to Queenstown, New Zealand where he established his love for the hospitality industry. Upon his return to Australia, James worked for Rydges Hotels and Resorts for ten years, culminating as an Area General Manager for the group.

With James’ skills and his leadership of a formidable team, Ross Hill Wines continues to leave a deeper impression on the wine industry with every year that the business continues to produce outstanding wines. James’ passion for the land and the environment has been a predominant driver for Ross Hill recently becoming a carbon neutral operation.
