Our vision and history.
The Millett Family of Sunbury has a lasting connection to Rosenthal’s story dating back to 1918. Over the years, the land has been used as a successful dairy farm and an award-winning winery.
The Rosenthel Developement was founded by Tom Millett, who envisioned creating an extended Sunbury community. With an importance on family living and a commitment to do right by the local community, Rosenthal has flourished into an exceptional neighbourhood.
1869 - 1882
Named by its original owner, Robert Frederick Kurrle, Rosenthal, meaning Rose Valley in German, was first operated as a winery.

Upon Frank and Ernest's passing, Rosenthal was sold to Paynes Properties.
Tom Millett re-purchased the property and continued to farm the land.
