Established in 1999, Ulupna Winery is a 22ha vineyard, located in the Victorian Goulburn Valley. Flourishing next to Australia’s longest river, the winery is nestled among Red Pepper Trees and majestic Red Gums which lend the vineyard its mineral-rich alluvial soils and distinctive climate. Ulupna Winery is a family run business, owned by Kathy and Nicholas who had intended the winery to be retirement activity. Kathy’s daughter, Viviana saw the great opportunity of the vineyard and alongside Kathy, proceeded to create a lasting legacy for the family and two daughters. ‘Ulupna’ was the historical name of the wider region in which the vineyard, winery and cellar door are located. The name was chosen to acknowledge the ancestry of the land, and additionally identifies the local Aboriginal clan of the Yorta Yorta tribe. ‘Ulupna’ translates as strong women.
