Garry Crittenden has announced that he is retiring from day-to-day involvement in Dromana Estate on Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, the wine company he founded 20 years ago. Crittenden stood down as chief executive officer of the company last November, at the annual general meeting, and retired from the board of Dromana Estate in April. All of the management and policy decisions are made from the city head office and have been for some time,' he said. Any future involvement may be solely as a consultant. Crittenden's son, Rollo, has taken over as winemaker and will be responsible for the design and construction of a new winery at Tuerong, the property in Moorooduc which is to become the home for the Dromana brands. He will oversee the transfer of all existing plant and equipment to the Tuerong site, which is expected to be operational before the next vintage. Crittenden scotched rumours that he was about to sell his property, which has been the family and winery's home for 20 years. Nothing could be further from the truth,' he said. The property is not now, never has been and is not likely to be put on the market.'
