Following the resignation of Paul Donaghy, Rockburn Wines has appointed Rebecca Poynter as their new General Manager. Poynter brings a wealth of experience to the role, having previously served as General Manager for Australian winery businesses Bimbadgen, one of the Hunter Valley’s most prestigious winery tourism operations, and Hollick Estates, Coonawarra. She moved to Bimbadgen from Villa Maria Estate, having been based in Sydney for four years as their Market Manager for Australia and Asia.

"I am excited to be returning to New Zealand to work for Rockburn, a Central Otago winery with an excellent reputation both in New Zealand and its export markets," said Ms. Poynter. "The winery has a very strong line-up of beautifully crafted wines, and the calibre of Rockburn’s Pinot Noir is regularly recognised with a multitude of international awards over successive vintages.”
