Wines from Beechworth, Victoria

Fighting Gully Road

Eagles soar across the escarpment on the edge of Fighting Gully Road seeking the ultimate vantage point.

Theirs is a timeless search, inspiring us to explore, test and trial in order to bring out the very best out of every wine we produce.

Our job is never done, as we strive to make our best even better.

OUr Wines

We make wines that are inspired by our site, our experience and our sense of curiosity.

Our passion is for Italian wines, with their savoury style and refined palate. We are inspired by the deep tradition and history of the Old wine world – and enlivened by the opportunity to experiment with these things in the new world.

We fell for Sangiovese in Tuscany in 1995, the wine that has it all; great acidity, colour, aromatics, not too tannic, perfectly suited to Italian cuisine. Once we realised the climatic and geographic similarities between northern Italy and our alpine home of Beechworth, we decided to set the bar for Sangiovese production in Australia.

Continuing improvement occurs each vintage, such as experimentation with wild and indigeous yeasts, alternative winemaking styles and barrel ageing.
