XTM Performance is the result of a brainstorming session between three hugely influential figures within the Australian snow scene, lifetime owner Pete “Fozza” Forras, NSW’s snowy cowboy Gary “X” Rae and the salmon of knowledge Bill “the Uncle” Dalton. The three decided that they wanted to create a brand that would change the face of Australia’s snow sports industry and show the world Australia is a country to be taken seriously in winter sports. From that small cafe in Sydney XTM was born. The name XTM is an abbreviation for the term “cross the mountain” or “X-The Mountain”.

Rochford Wines originated with CEO Helmut Konecsny in the Macedon Ranges in the late 90’s before moving to the Yarra Valley in 2002 with the purchase of the current estate. Situated in the Yarra Valley; a subregion of Coldstream and Gruyere, Rochford produces premium cool climate wines from several vineyards throughout the Yarra Valley focusing predominantly on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Our winemaking duo of Kaspar Hermann and Joe Ho have been the custodians of Rochford’s winemaking portfolio since 2019 with David Ammerlaan joining us in 2020 as our Vineyard Manager.
Kaspar has had an extensive career within the Yarra Valley beginning in 2004 at Seville Estate before undertaking stints at Coldstream hills, Punch, Viticoltori De Conciliis in Campania, as well as 8 years as Assistant Winemaker at the esteemed Mount Mary. Kaspars’ extensive experience in cool climate winemaking and long history within the Yarra Valley provides the strong backbone of Rochford’s winemaking experience, particularly with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Bordeaux Varietals.
The knowledge and dedication of this team partnered with Helmut’s entrepreneurial leadership creates an environment for wines to be created that have a true regional identity as well as capturing the essence of some of the most sought-after single vineyards in the Yarra Valley.
