After graduating from Roseworthy at the end of 1981, Ros returned home to Victoria to help establish and set up the Delatite winery. She was the winemaker for Delatite for the next 25 years, producing and growing the range of wines; these included the classic aromatics, methode champenoise sparkling, as well as red varietals and blends.

Over the years she took several opportunities to travel within France, Germany and Italy several times, but especially to Alsace, Baden, the Mosel, Rheingau and Pfalz, whose wines strengthened her passion for riesling and gewürztraminer and stimulated her interest in pinot gris.

In 2008, Ros established her own winemaking enterprise with an independent label. She has operated from Barwite Vineyards since 2014 were she is also the esteemed winemaker.

Ros has recently opened a Cellar Door at Magnolia House on Mount Buller Road Mansfield. A beautiful and historic location with lovely garden surrounds. Pop~in and sample her stunning wines and delicious pairing food ~ OPEN every weekend and public holidays.
