Ninth-generation winemaker Dominique Portet chose the cool climate of aptly named Coldstream in the Yarra Valley as home to the eponymous winery he founded in 2000. It was the culmination of a tenacious search for grape growing terroir to rival that of his native Bordeaux – but also the start of a new chapter in a winemaking story that has its roots in France in the early 1700s.
Now son Ben – generation 10 – heads the winemaking team, firmly observing the central tenets of this young yet historic estate: respect for tradition, understanding of site and an open mind towards contemporary practices that shape wines that are ever more refined and delicious.
'Wine quality is exemplary across the board, and the serene surrounding landscape is the Yarra Valley at its best.' Review by Ralph Kyte-Powell.
Operating out of their brand new kitchen, chef Tomo delivers a superb menu of French and Japanese style meals from the winemaker's table (perfectly paired with a cool glass of the estate's Fontaine Rosé).
