Adopt – A – Vine

About

It’s that time again to experience the life cycle of a grape by making your very own wine.  Join us for a fully immersive experience of the 12 months of farming grapes, making wine and being able to walk away with a wine that you can rightfully claim as your very own.

You will connect with our winemaker, vineyard manager and the cellar door crew as you pick, crush, ferment, mature and blend, bottle and label your own Yarra Valley Pinot Noir. You will be a part of six on-site workshops and experiences as well as indulge in a large smattering of being spoiled while you are here.

We promise a once-in-a-lifetime experience,  with serious bragging rights and a lasting memento… if you don’t drink the wine too quickly!
