Jones Winery & Vineyard

Victoria | Rutherglen

James' Review

Jones Winery & Vineyard was established in 1860 and stands as testament to a rich winemaking tradition. Since 1927, the winery has been owned and operated by the Jones family. Two blocks of old vines have been preserved (including 1.69ha of shiraz), supported by further blocks progressively planted between '75 and 2008. Today, Jones Winery & Vineyard is jointly operated by winemaker Mandy Jones, who brought years of experience working in Bordeaux, and her brother Arthur Jones. Together they produce a small range of boutique wines.

About

Jones Winery and Vineyard was established in 1860 and stands testament to a rich wine making tradition. Since 1927, the winery has been owned and operated by the Jones family. Entire blocks of old vine have been preserved making the winery one of only a few in Australia to produce wine from vines planted more than 100 years ago.
Today, Jones Winery and Vineyard is jointly operated by wine maker Mandy Jones, who brings 14 years of experience working in the Bordeaux region in France, and her brother Arthur Jones. Together they produce a small range of boutique wines.
"We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to work with vines that were planted over 100 years ago..."
