Event Details

He is Margaret River, Barolo and Valtellina.

“All incredible areas of natural beauty, all with a history and tradition of fine winemaking and all with a strong influence upon me and the fine wines which I craft.”



Who is Mr. Barval?

Mr. Barval is headed up by owner and winemaker Robert Gherardi. The story of Robert’s journey in wine is strongly influenced by the regions he has originated, lived and worked. These highly rated wines are a combination of Robert’s personality, cultural background and the amazing vineyards he has had the privilege to work with. The three regions that have influenced and shaped his winemaking: Margaret River, Barolo, and Valtellina.


Robert’s Journey into wine.

As a child, Robert began picking grapes with his family. They produced 3 tonnes of fruit in his “Nona’s” suburban backyard. A family tradition which is still in practice today. After high school, Robert completed a degree in Marine Science and Biotechnology. While studying, he worked at a local wine store. It was here where he had the opportunity of attending wine events, which opened up his horizon to the best local and international wines. With a great staff discount, which Robert took immediate advantage of, he began to learn about great producers and great wines. At 27, Robert decided to take the plunge and jump ship in career and commence a winemaking and viticulture degree completing a full undergraduate program. He is now the proud owner and winemaker of Mr. Barval Wines.
