Sandhurst Ridge

Victoria | Bendigo

James' Review

The Greblo brothers (Paul is the winemaker, George the viticulturist), with combined experience in business, agriculture, science and construction and development, began the establishment of Sandhurst Ridge in 1990, planting the first 2ha of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon. Plantings have increased to over 7ha, principally cabernet and shiraz, but also a little merlot, nebbiolo and sauvignon blanc. As the business has grown, the Greblos have supplemented their crush with grapes grown in the region. Exports to Norway, Malaysia, Taiwan and China.

About

Sandhurst Ridge Winery produces intensely-flavoured, handcrafted wines full of character. With the benefit of the Greblo family’s Italian winemaking heritage and Bendigo’s marvellous Mediterranean climate, we believe we have the perfect conditions for creating great Australian wines with a European soul.

Specialities

Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, sauvignon blanc, nebbiolo.

Cellar Door

Information

Step into the tasting room at Sandhurst Ridge and pause a minute to take in the expansive and stunning view of the vineyard through the huge burgundy-framed windows. Then turn to the tasting bench, a long piece of polished jarrah, lined with bottles, and you’re likely to find one of the family pouring your first tasting. Pull up a stool and settle in for a good chat – and some beautiful wine.
We do not serve food at Sandhurst Ridge, but you are more than welcome to bring a grazing platter or picnic lunch to enjoy with a bottle of our wine. There are tables and chairs both inside the tasting room and out on the patio.
