The Alena Collection
Alena is an ancient Greek origin of the name Helen meaning light or the fairest of all. Alena pays tribute to our passionate and dedicated owner.
In stories of long ago, Helen of Troy was considered the most beautiful woman of her time (in that part of Europe). Married to the King of Sparta, she was kidnapped by Paris, the Trojan prince, causing an outbreak of war.
Like Helen of Troy, Alena is something to be envied, desired, something to be possessed and celebrated. Timeless. Age worthy. Classic. The Alena range offers premium single vineyard wines made without regard to expense, to produce an age worthy expression of the Helen & Joey farm in Gruyere. A longer lasting memento of the particular conditions in a specific growing season.
Hand picked, barrel aged, premium Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Merlot.
The Layla Collection
Layla is an ancient middle eastern name meaning Dark Beauty, relating to the Ecstasy of the Wine, that feeling comes over your body when drinking wine.
The Layla range is about premium modern expressions of the hero varieties of the Yarra Valley. They are the wines in which the vineyard, soil, season and microclimates are most evident.
A range of exceptional wine for an excellent price.
The Inara Collection
Inara is an ancient middle eastern name meaning joyful, youthful, luminous. The Inara range is all about everyday and every occasion deliciousness. They are Yarra Valley wines that shine in their youth, versatile, refreshing, approachable. They epitomise the casual character of Australian culture and life.

The Late Harvest Collection
Consider these wines as an introduction to an evening of fun, the start of a long, languid lunch or the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Don’t worry about being late, relax and enjoy. Let our wines be the start of something great.
The Wayward Child Collection
It’s the spirit of adventure and the journey of discovery. It’s the spark, the light, the striking of the match, witnessing a moment and grabbing it, without constraint an untrammelled response to the calling of the vineyard, the freedom to explore and get it wrong.
The Wayward Child range are wines that do not conform, that surprise and delight.
All Wayward Child wines are handmade, at our winery in tiny quantities. You will not find these wines in mainstream bottle shops or discount websites. If you’re lucky, one of your favourite restaurants may have some on their wine list for a short period of time. If you want some, today is the day.
