David and Carla Falk have operated a real estate and livestock agency in since 1989, the property ‘just a couple of ridges away' from Newtons Ridge Estate. When they heard that founder David Newton was contemplating pulling out the vines, they purchased the vineyard, in 2012, completing a circle that began in the 1880s when Carla's family were among the first vignerons in Geelong - they produce wine in Switzerland to this day.
Newtons Ridge Estate Vineyard & Winery was established in 1998. The first vintage was produced in 2001. This small vineyard is owned and run by the Familie Falk-Deppeler. All grapes are hand tended & wines hand made. Another lovely thing about this vineyard is that the grapes are handpicked by family & friends. Including locals & local community groups; Port Campbell Surf Lifesaving Club, Timboon Cub Scouts, Timboon Football & Netball Club & Warrnambool Rotary Day Break.
The winery produces an outstanding selection of estate grown red & white wines. The wines are hand made, bottled & labelled on site. The property is situated high on a ridge with a superb northerly aspect, well sheltered from the prevailing winds of the Southern Ocean.
