Grape Farm Winery

Victoria | Pyrenees

James' Review

Grape Farm Winery was established back in 1976 when the vineyard was acquired by chef Heath and mental health professional Karina Stevenson. They have learnt on the job, carrying all of the vineyard work, Heath the self-taught winemaker. The wines are estate-grown; the low-yielding vineyard managed organically.

About

Grape Farm Winery is a small family tended vineyard located in its own breath taking natural amphitheatre in the Pyrenees wine region. Our wine making methods are personal and traditional and are founded upon organic principles. Vines are hand-pruned, hand-tendered and hand-harvested. Grapes are fermented in open vats, basket pressed and allowed to mature in French and American oak barrels and stainless steel for up to 18 months. All wines are made from fruit harvested from our vineyard. The “grape miles” from the vineyard to the glass are very very low! For example, our nebbiolo is grown, fermented, pressed, matured, bottled and often consumed within a radius of 50 metres.

Specialities

Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling
