We have a winery and vineyard outside Mansfield around 3 hours north east of Melbourne in Victoria. Mansfield is at the base of Mt Buller, Victoria's premier ski resort, and is also next to Lake Eildon.
Our winery and vineyard was established by my parents in the late 1960's and the wines are now sold around Australia and exported.
We grow our grapes biodynamically and use no pesticides/herbicides.
We have a cellar door and cafe for tasting and sales that is open seven days a week.
A current Drivers license is essential.
