Rob discovered Chard Farm as a run-down, failing, stone fruit orchard in the early 80’s and converted it into a vineyard. He’s at the helm still, although he is trying desperately to delegate more/retire or pass the baton to his children! When not on the Farm, he’s often seen amongst our beautiful vineyard holdings in the Cromwell area.
Gerdi, our proprietor and office manager, she is also the local Arrowtown Preschool office manager. She runs both with an iron fist and good German financial rectitude! A keen mountain biker, she is often seen cycling between the two offices and is also famous for her legendary staff lunches.
