This is a winery to watch. Owner/winemaker Chris Catlow was born (1982) and raised in Beechworth, and says,‘A passion for wine was inevitable.’ He drew particular inspiration from Barry Morey of Sorrenberg, working there in his late teens. He completed a double-major in viticulture science and wine science at La Trobe University, working with Paringa Estate, Kooyong and Portsea Estate from 2006–13. Here Sandro Mosele led him to his fascination with the interaction between place and chardonnay, and he in turn worked with Benjamin Leroux in Burgundy during vintage ’13, ’14 and ’16.
