Mount Avoca

Victoria | Pyrenees

James' Review

A winery that has long been one of the stalwarts of the Pyrenees region, owned by third-generation Matthew and Lisa Barry. The estate vineyards (shiraz, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, merlot, cabernet franc, tempranillo, lagrein, viognier, sangiovese, nebbiolo and semillon) are organically managed. The Moates Lane wines are partly or wholly made from contract-grown grapes, but other releases are estate-grown. Mount Avoca has continued to implement organic practises, and has obtained full organic certification for some of the estate-grown wines, and the winery was certified organic in 2016. Exports to China.

About

Modern day pioneers, the Barry family have created Mount Avoca’s award winning wines on the estate since 1970. From our cool climate organically managed vineyard, grapes are crushed and crafted into extraordinary wines featuring great varietal character and regional distinction. Experience 40 years of tradition and innovation and share our passion in our stone tasting room, overlooking the vineyards and Pyrenees Ranges.

The vineyard has been Australian Certified Organic since 2013 and the winery since 2016.
