Summer Quinta Quarterly

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

For many, the summer holidays are a time of slowing down and recharging, but for us, it’s when we start the hustle and haul of making wine. The vineyard team are in full swing and won’t slow down until April or May when the last of the grapes are harvested. The winemaking team - still working on our 2017 wines - are also prepping the barrels, tanks and equipment in time for vintage, which usually starts around Australia Day for us when we pick the Chardonnay, and a short time later, Muscat (for Moscato and Sparkling). Continue reading...

There’s no right or wrong way to enjoy wine and if you like it, you like it, regardless of what others think.  Continue reading...

Summer Quinta Quarterly

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

For the second year in a row, we’ve been shortlisted for the Australian Wine Producer of the Year Trophy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. To be recognised for consistent quality is a great way to finish 2016, and a what a year it’s been. The weather has been superb and if it stays relatively dry and mild, the 2017 vintage will be another standout (my fingers are crossed as I’ve put my hand up again to be the cellar hand). Continue reading...

Winery Walkabout 2016 Photo Library

Monday, June 27, 2016


We had a blast this year at Winery Walkabout, one of Victoria's biggest wine festivals. Great weather meant the crowds could enjoy the sunshine (except for a wet and windy 20 minute stint on Saturday) and the George McFloyd Blues Band kept everyone's toes tapping. There was a touch of excitement when a shuttle bus got bogged but it wouldn't be a country festival without a tractor to save the day.  Here's a selection of photos from #WineryWalkabout2016 and we look forward to seeing old and new faces next year! Continue reading...
