Our Wines

Our Day to Remember

About 2.00pm on Monday 24th September2018 we received a phone call from one of the representatives of the Canberra Regional Wine Show who asked us to provide them with three bottles of our 2016 chardonnay for tasting at the presentation of awards of their wine show. I asked why the bottles were required and the representative told us that we had won a gold medal with our 2016 chardonnay.

Later that day we received an email from the Australian Highlands Wine Show which asked us to provide 4 bottles of our 2016 merlot for their presentation of awards night. We were then advised that our 2016 merlot had won a gold medal in their show.

We are a very small vineyard. Small vineyards rarely win gold medals in wine shows so to be advised that we had won two gold medals on the same day was extraordinary certainly a day to remember. The winning of these two gold medals takes our total of gold medals won so far to four and hopefully still increasing.

We grow the grapes and then take the grapes to Mount Majura Winery at Canberra where Frank van de Loo makes the wine. Our thanks go to Frank for his work. Frank was a recent finalist in the competition for the best Australian wine maker of 2018.We have the best value wine in the Southern Highlands. You be the judge so come and taste it and judge for yourself.

WE ARE OPEN FOR TASTINGS AND SALES BUT BECAUSE OF COVID WE ARE LIMITED AS TO THE NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS WE CAN HAVE IN THE CELLAR DOOR AT THE SAME TIME SO WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU RING AND MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOUR TASTING.

COME AND MEET DOT A DELIGHTFUL IRISH LADY WHO IS IN CHARGE OF OUR CELLAR DOOR.
