Centennial Winery

Centennial Vineyards is a very impressive property incorporating a restaurant, winery and event facilities for international performing artists, it is located just minutes from the township of Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

The premium cool climate vineyard at over 760m in altitude ensures the grapes ripen slowly with enhanced flavour and intensity. The vines at Centennial Vineyards are planted over 80 acres consisting of Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Gruner Ventliner & Tempranillo.

The chief winemaker, Mr Tony Cogsriff has had nearly 2 decades working with Centennial. Tony grew up in New Zealand and after graduating university worked with many well known NZ wineries before coming to Australia to join Mr John Large a successful wine industry retailer and entrepreneur who runs Centennial Winery.

Tony has won many accolades for his high quality wines and sets a quality benchmark to match in the impressive surroundings of the property.

The Challenge

The existing coating was deteriorated from heavy traffic and bacteria build up from Yeast and salts and causing a dangerous hazard for forklifts and possible contamination issues for the wine.

The coatings needed to handle heavy and light wear and ongoing wet conditions from the grapes and wash down. Centennial Vineyards came to ROXSET HACCP Coatings to provide an impervious non slip highly protective & safe coating in the production and cellar areas.

The Solution

The Roxset SE 6m coating system in Roxset Mid Grey was installed over 600sqm to key production areas around fermentation, bottling cellar and barrel was areas. Roxset epoxy screeds and ceramic additives has assisted in providing superior lasting protection to exposed concrete. A high glass finish was applied around coving and an epoxy detail formed around the slotted drains for Protection.

Benefits

  • High level of protection from contamination
  • Seamless Non Slip Finish
  • Long lasting and durable

We are delighted with the incredibly hard and durable surface of the SE solution from ROXSET. Protecting our sought after pedigree wines from bacteria build up as a result of possible chipped and exposed surface areas is a critical part of our processing. We now have a fantastic, fresh clean environment which is impressive for both visitors and staff.
