Some of the wineries we visit include:
Boat O'Craigo Winery
Named after the winery’s ancestors who hailed from the town of Craigo in Scotland, this winery actually has two vineyards – one in Healesville and one in Kangaroo Ground - enabling them to produce wines that are handcrafted from grape varietals specifically chosen from each site. From the alluvial river soils of the Black Spur Range come early ripening varieties of Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay, alongside their only red varietal Pinot Noir. While from the rich, black volcanic soils of Kangarroo Ground come their renowned Black Cameron Shiraz, Braveheart Cabernet Sauvignon and Kincardine Grenache. But you can enjoy all their noble varieties of wine at each location.
St Huberts Winery
One of the oldest wineries located at the gateway to the Yarra Valley, originally established in 1862 by winemaker pioneer Charles Hubert de Castella, who helped establish the region as a premium wine producing area. St Huberts is renowned for Cabernet Sauvignon with its intense fruit flavours, depth and concentration; other varieties on offer include Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Roussanne.
Coldstream Hills Winery
Coldstream Hills was founded by distinguished Australian wine writer James Halliday in 1985. It has grown to become one of Australia's leading small wineries. As the name suggests, this winery enjoys a cool climate enabling it to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties of elegant wines renowned for their fine and long finish.
