The vineyard is a bit over 80 acres in size. Grape production is targeted at 200-240 tonne which produces an average of about 20 000 x 12 bottle cases. This puts us at the larger end of boutique wine production in Australia.
Our vineyard planting is split 65% red varieties and 35% white varieties. The reds are Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a very small amount of Shiraz. The is also a small planting of Cabernet Franc, but these vines are so new they are yet to produce fruit.
The whites are predominantly Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, with very small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
We make quite a lot of different wines at a variety of prices. Our most affordable wines are called Inara and include a sparkling, a rosé, three reds and two whites. They are all made as easy drinking lifestyle wines, launched just in time for Aussie summer living. Our premium wines are called Layla and Alena. We also make experimental/alternative wines called Wayward Child and Ultra-premium classics under our “Block D”, “Re’em” and “Alicorn” labels.

We are closed Good Friday and Christmas Day.
