Sutherland Estate

Victoria | Yarra Valley

James' Review

The Phelan family established Sutherland Estate in 2000 when they purchased a mature 2ha vineyard at Dixons Creek. Further plantings followed: the vineyard now consists of 1ha each of chardonnay and pinot noir, and 0.5ha each of gewurztraminer, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and shiraz. Ron Phelan designed and built the cellar door, which enjoys stunning views over the Yarra Valley, while daughter Cathy studied Wine Science at CSU. The sparkling wines are made by Phil Kelly, the reds by Cathy and partner Angus Ridley (who worked at Coldstream Hills for a decade) and the Chardonnay by Rob Hall.
