McGlashan's Wallington Estate

Victoria | Geelong

James' Review

Russell and Jan McGlashan began the establishment of their vineyard in 1996. Chardonnay (6ha) and pinot noir (4ha) make up the bulk of the plantings, the remainder shiraz and pinot gris (1ha each). The wines are made by Robin Brockett, with his usual skill and attention to detail. The cellar door offers food and music, with four cottages offering vineyard accommodation.
