Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra.

A minimalistic approach is employed throughout the winemaking process to complement what has been painstakingly achieved in the vineyard. Merlot grapes are destemmed and crushed into fermentation vessels. Fruit is pumped over and plunged several times daily for optimal extraction rich of colour, flavour and and just the right amount of gentle, soft tannins. Following the press and completion of malolactic, a component is transferred to a selection of seasoned French and American oak barriques for a year's maturation. Free range organic egg whites are employed to naturally soften the wine's tannins prior to filtration into bottle.
Deep crimson hues. The nose offers lifted ripe fruit aromas of blood plums and bramble along with dark chocolate oak. Vibrant red plum and berry fruits over subtle spice and cedar undertones. An abundance of dark fruit are paired with fine grained tannins to give a generous and rounded mouthfeel of great intensity and persistence. The full, textured palate and soft tannins make Villa Maria an excellent food wine.
