This enterprise has grown in stages since the first vines (chardonnay) were planted at the Eltham Vineyard in 1982, followed by cabernet sauvignon in '83. In '86 a second vineyard at Shaws Road, Arthurs Creek, was established, with larger plantings of chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. This vineyard was expanded in '97 with additional plantings of pinot noir and chardonnay. In 2007 a new winery on the Shaws Road vineyard was completed. The following year Strathewen Hills winery and vineyard were purchased from the Christophersen family.
Shaws Road Winery is nestled among the gentle rolling hills of the western Yarra Valley, 10 minutes from Hurstbridge or 5 minutes from St Andrews. Open the third Sunday of every month for wine tastings, cellar door sales and lunch.
Shaws Road Winery produces classic Yarra Valley cool-climate wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon Franc Merlot, Merlot and sparkling Chardonnay / Pinot.
