Blue Pyrenees Estate

Victoria | Pyrenees

James' Review

Forty years after Remy Cointreau established Blue Pyrenees Estate (then known as Chateau Remy), the business was sold to a small group of Sydney businessmen. Former Rosemount senior winemaker Andrew Koerner heads the winery team. The core of the business is the very large estate plantings, most decades old, but with newer arrivals, including viognier. Blue Pyrenees has a number of programs designed to protect the environment and reduce its carbon footprint. Blue Pyrenees Estate has been purchased by Glenlofty Wines, forming the largest producer in the Pyrenees. Exports to Asia, primarily China.


Blue Pyrenees Estate was established in 1963 by the French company Remy Martin, and was among the modern Australian wine industry's first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Today, Blue Pyrenees is 100 per cent Australian owned and is led by Chief Winemaker Andrew Koerner. Proud of the fact that all of their wines are made from grapes grown in their vineyards and produced in their estate winery, Blue Pyrenees Estate are committed to making authentic, world class-quality wines.
