The definitive guide to Australian Wines
In 2010 Steve Tobin and family acquired the winery and vineyard of Amberley Estate from Accolade, but not the Amberley brand. Steve has turned the property into a multifaceted business with a host of attractions: a restaurant, sports car collection, wedding venue and so forth. Exports to Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China.

Aravina Estate was established in 2010 by Perth businessman Steve Tobin. It is located on Thornton Road, Yallingup in the northern corner of the premium wine-growing region of Margaret River in Western Australia – close to the town of Dunsborough and the famed surf at Yallingup. The property was established in 1986 under the original name – Amberley Estate.Nestled amongst the picturesque setting of expansive vineyards across rolling hills, natural bushland and manicured gardens, Aravina Estate would surely be one of Margaret River’s finest wine producing Estates in the region.The mature vineyards, first planted in the sub-region of Yallingup in 1986, are located in free-draining, lateritic, gravelly soil that is perfect for growing ultra-premium wine grapes. The region has a strong maritime climate with the influence from the Indian and Southern Oceans giving rise to the finest fruit which has optimal flavour and intensity reflective of the unique ‘terroir’ or sense of place.Aravina estate consists of 180 acres (73 hectares) of which 69 acres (28 hectares) are under vine with plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and recently planted Tempranillo and Malbec.The wines are made and managed by winemaker, Ryan Aggiss who joined the team in 2016. The wines produced under the Aravina label are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz, Shiraz Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Rosé, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Traditional Method Sparkling.Aravina Estate has a 5 Star rating and is listed in Top 10 Best New Wineries in the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2014.
