Brad Atkins and Matthew Davis acquired a 2ha vineyard of 25 to 30-year-old dry-grown chardonnay and pinot noir in 2009. For reasons unexplained, the owners have a particular love of gates, and as the property is at the end of Steels Creek, the choice of Steels Gate was obvious. The next step was to engage French designer Cecile Darcy to create what is known today as the Steels Gate logo.
Steels Gate consists of two boutique vineyards within the Yarra Valley.
Steels Gate Home Block Vineyard, situated at 230m above sea level was planted in the early 1980’s on an undulating slope on friable grey loam soils. Completely unirrigated and hand nurtured. Surrounded by National Park. The vines are cared for by hand and the grapes carefully hand picked at the perfect harvest time.
Steels Gate @ Shantell Vineyard, situated at 150m above sea level was planted in the early 1980s. The vines are cared for by hand and the grapes carefully picked at the perfect harvest time. Shantell vineyard is the home of the Steels Gate cellar door and restaurant.
