Dental surgeon Ian Hanson planted his first vines in the late 1960s, close to the junction of the Yarra and Plenty rivers; in 83 those plantings were extended (by 3000 vines), and in 88 the Tarrahill property at Yarra Glen was established with a further 4 ha. The vineyards were devastated by the Black Saturday bushfires in February 2009, with only 1.2ha of cabernet franc and 0.4ha of cabernet sauvignon remaining. Tragic. Exports to the UK.
This winery is now closed.
