From our family to you, bienvenue!

From the first vine planting in 1998, our family’s single estate vineyard has grown into a renowned multi-generational boutique producer of French-style wines. Home of Winestate Magazine’s 2018 Australian Wine of the Year, we are located on the hills above the historic village of Rylstone, an area we were drawn to for its similarity to the Burgundian terroir of our heritage.

Great Wine Starts in the Vineyard

We believe great wine is made in the vineyard, and it all starts with terroir. Our exceptional terroir is the closest comparable in Australia to Burgundy. Our limestone enriched soils and ultra-cool climate enable cultivation of outstanding grapes. Our enduring drive for quality is supported by our focus on terroir-driven cultivation & wine making; and precision viticulture and sustainability.

From Vine to Wine

As stewards of our land and honouring our Burgundian forebears, we pursue a French winemaking style – an elegant, balanced and age-worthy style that captures the exceptional character of our special limestone-based terroir, celebrating the variations of each vintage with the minimum of intervention”
