In 1922, after serving in WWI, Grandfather Reginald Curtis migrated to Australia from Cornwall in England. In 1926 Reginald planted the first Curtis family vineyard in 20 acres of land in Waikerie, South Australia.
The father, Gordon Curtis, was one of the first students who graduated from Roseworthy campus, specializing in viticulture practices, and the Curtis family became one of the quality grape suppliers to G. Gramp and Sons, later Orlando Wines.
In 2007, third generation Scott Curtis, benefiting from a family history of wine industry experience to continue the excellence in wine growing and making, established Noble Road Wines – named from the road just next to Curtis cottage in Waikerie.
Since 1988, Scott Curtis has been the head winemaker for Noble Road Wines. With over thirty years experience and a lot of patience and persistence, Scott is devoted to improving the quality of the wine every year.
