Welshmans Reef Vineyard

Victoria | Bendigo

Our Review

The Snep family (Ronald, Jackson and Alexandra) began developing Welshmans Reef Vineyard in 1986, planting cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and semillon. Chardonnay and merlot were added in the early '90s, sauvignon blanc and tempranillo later. The vineyard is certified organic. For some years the grapes were sold to other wineries, but in the early '90s the Sneps decided to share winemaking facilities established in the Old Newstead Co-operative Butter Factory with several other small vineyards. When the Butter Factory facility closed down, the Sneps built a winery and mudbrick tasting room onsite. Exports to China.
