Labour Day Long Weekend
28th September 2017
It seems odd to be working on Labour Day which is all about reducing work hours but regardless Nick and I will be manning cellar door this coming Monday. If you feel like celebrating your day off come and visit us for a tasting. Booked appointments can purchase a regional platter to go with the tasting. Just email Cate at email@example.com .

11th April 2017
Last year vintage was almost over by Easter. This year we will be in the thick of it. To add to the fun Cate is in final rehearsals for Cavalleria Rusticana with the State Opera. I'm afraid we decided opening for Good Friday and Easter Monday as well was just a bit much! We'll be open as usual on Saturday the 15th and Sunday the 16th April. Wishing everyone a safe and happy Easter.
Cellar door winter break
30th May 2016
Please note that our cellar door will be closed in June and July to allow us time for a well-earned break. We look forward to seeing you in August.
8th March 2016
There is no such thing as a public holiday for us during vintage! We are picking all day on Monday the 14th March so won't be manning cellar door. We'll also be closed on Good Friday, but will be open on Easter Monday and Anzac Day.
Top Note Opens Cellar Door
8th January 2016
Be it ever so humble there is no place better than our new cellar door to treat yourself to some cool climate wines on a hot summer day. We open on the 16th January and will have four wines on tasting including a new vintage of our lovely sticky, a classy cool climate Chardonnay and a 2015 Merlot - along with that divine 2013 Pinot Noir. All details are on our website Cellar Door Page.
Halliday awards the 2013 Pinot Noir 91 points
12th October 2015
After a great start scoring 90 for our Semillon Rosé last year we are thrilled to receive 91 this year for our 2013 Pinot Noir from the guru of Australian wine writers. Halliday writes "Deep crimson-purple,this is (in pinot terms) a medium to fullbodied wine, with plum and black cherry fruit staying within the bounds of varietal expression. Smart packaging is a plus."
