Melbourne academic Dr Teunis Kwak and wife Dorothy have a 4ha fully mature vineyard, part planted in 1976, the remainder in 88. The deliberately low-yielding vineyard was established on a fairly steep, picturesque, undulating hillside. Over the years the Kwaks have built four major, and a couple of lesser, stone buildings on the property, all from sandstone sourced onsite or from their neighbours paddocks. A number of left-field wines are made, including a Vintage Pinot Port, a Chardonnay Liqueur and a Sparkling Cabernet Franc, and the Kwaks cheerfully admit that even their table wines are calculated to please their cellar door customers rather than wine show judges. Exports to China.
This winery is now closed.
