James' Review

Shane and Loretta Breheny’s 20ha property is situated predominantly on a gentle, north-facing slope, with cypress trees on the western and southern borders providing protection against the wind. Vines were planted over 2001–02, with pinot noir (4ha) taking the lion’s share, followed by pinot gris and shiraz (2.4ha each) and 0.1ha each of chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Viticulture is Loretta’s love; winemaking (and wine) is Shane’s.


The grapes for our cool climate wines are handpicked from our nine hectare vineyard. The wines are an expression of our tranquil site nestled between the surrounding Surf Coast hinterland and Mt Moriac. They are handcrafted in our small onsite winery with traditional techniques.
