Our vineyards are world renowned. Come experience them for yourself.

Steels Creek Estate

Steels Creek Estate is believed to be the smallest winery in the Yarra Valley owned by Simon and Joanne Peirce. Surrounded by native bush, the property is home to a diverse range of insects, birdlife, plants and animals. For this reason, the pair never use insecticides in the vineyard, and now use under vine cultivation and hand-weed their crops.

The husband-and-wife team make their wines on site from estate-grown fruit using traditional winemaking techniques and minimal intervention. This includes adopting wild yeast ferments and minimal fining and filtering, and small-batch, whole berry ferments in open fermenters for the red varieties, and in-barrel for the Chardonnay.

Explore the vineyard, taste the wines, and discuss their small batch, wild ferment and natural winemaking processes – and be sure to try Steels Creek’s unique Colombard and Cabernet Franc drops.

Mandala

Established by the Smedley family in 1999,  Mandala Wines is a Five-Star James Halliday-rated winery in the Yarra Valley. The main site and Cellar Door at Dixon’s Creek offers a full range of prized Estate wines for tasting, along with its renowned assortment of Single-Site wines.

Mandala Wines covers two properties in the rolling hills of the Yarra Valley in regional Victoria.

The Yarra Junction vineyard was selected for its high altitude, which offers great character to the exclusive Pinot Noir vines. The Dixons Creek vineyard harvests Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot, across a 104-acre panorama of vines, dams, kangaroos and tranquillity.

Today Mandala is thriving within its beautiful Yarra Valley country setting, where the Smedley kids play and older ones spend time together, tell stories and enjoy the good life.

Mandala was established to be a legacy for the future generations of the Smedleys, and to be indulged by whomever catches the wine bug – their place is your place.

Sutherland Estate

Sutherland Estate has one of the most spectacular vineyard sites in Australia. On high ground at the southern edge of the Great Divide, the cathedral-ceilinged cellar door and large outside deck command impressive views down the Yarra Valley and far into the distance.

As a family-run boutique winery,  Angus and Cathy are committed to producing the highest quality wines of true regional character. An ex-ballerina and ex-barrister, the pair produces less than 2000 cases each vintage.

The fruit is hand-picked at optimal ripeness and acidity, at the moment of their choosing. In the winery, their philosophy is “less is more”. With a passion for minimal intervention, they are content to let the fruit speak for itself – a product of their site, unadorned by artifice.

When visiting Cathy and Angus at Sutherland Estate, be sure to enjoy the views on the deck while sipping on their Sparkling Tempranillo and experiencing their renowned cheese boards.

Spots Drop

You can see this Pinot Noir only vineyard through our trees and up the road a bit. It’s also from Steels Creek and Spot is the vineyard dog! Spots Drop is the best value Pinot Noir you’re going to find. Their Pinot Noir is a lighter style fruit driven wine, which we think goes with everything from cheese to duck, and especially well with spices and Asian inspired flavours. It was handpicked (with some help from us!) in vintage 2015. Perfect to sip on while watching the hills turn pink as the sun goes down.
