This family boutique vineyard produces Shiraz, Riesling, Merlot and a sparkling white made from 100% Pinot a delicious sparkling Merlot and a fresh fruity Rose. They also have a small patch of olives and visitors always enjoy the tasty peppery olive oil.
The winery has been consistently awarded 4 Star ratings by James Halliday. The Riesling is particularly sought after and has won several awards at wine shows including rating over the past years between 93 and 95 by James Halliday.
The Shiraz has won awards at various shows and will soon be exported to the boutique market in the US.
The sparkling blanc de noir is made from 100% pinot and has been one of our most popular wines over recent years. Their newest wine, a sparkling Merlot has also been a great hit and they expect the clean fresh Rose to be a hit this summer.
All wines are handpicked and made using traditional techniques which include gentle crushing, open vat fermentation and gentle pressing followed by maturation in oak barrels.
You will find the wines available at many local outlets around the Daylesford Macedon Ranges wine region including Kyneton and Woodend. They are also proud sponsors of the Redstich Actors Theatre in Chapel Street, St Kilda, and Melbourne, where the wines are available at performances.
