Sorrenberg is a
2.5 hectare vineyard which is owned by Barry and Jan Morey and situated on the outskirts of Beechworth
The Morey family has a tradition of winemaking that goes back over 500 years to the Mosel River in Germany. Barry's grandfather, Jacob Barzen, emigrated to Australia to work on a family vineyard and winery at Dookie. This vineyard has since been sold and converted back to grazing land. The name Sorrenberg comes from a small vineyard owned by the Barzen family near a town called Reil on the Mosel.
 Sorrenberg

The Sorrenberg vineyards are surrounded by forest on two sides, while Stony Creek runs across the back boundary. The area was selected for viticulture because of its cool climate and favourable granitic soil. The undulating site provides good drainage and the northern aspect ensures full ripeness is achieved even with the later ripening varieties.

To achieve maximum quality and potential, the vines at Sorrenberg are closely planted on a single fruiting wire. Foliage wires are used to achieve good berry exposure. The vines were planted in 1985 and the first vintage was in 1989. The main varietials at Sorrenberg are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Gamay with smaller quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Semillon and Pinot Noir for the blends that the winery is well known for.

The grapes are processed at the vineyard and traditional methods are used in the wine making process with fermentation being carried out in French Barriques. The policy at Sorrenberg is to produce hand made wines, the low production allows individual attention to be given to each barrel of wine thereby ensuring maximum quality and flavour

The style of Gamay Sorrenberg produce is a combination of Burgundian and Beaujolais techniques. There is 10% Pinot Noir used in the blend. Half of the Gamay was cold macerated where the fruit is picked cold, crushed and left to soak for 4 days before fermentation starts. Of the rest, 20% of the fruit is left whole in the ferment. Fermentation is for 2 weeks on skins, after which the wine is pressed and matured in oak for eleven months. The sultry Barmutha Cabernet Sauvignon/ Cabernet Franc/ Merlot from Sorrenberg was an inspiration stemming from the hot year of 2003. Whilst this complex blended red was a deviation from the usual Sorrenberg finesse, it stands as an interesting and titillating regional red, and an excellent winter wine.

"Barry and Jan Morey keep a low profile, but the wines from their 2.5-ha vineyard at Beechworth have a cult following not far removed from that of Giaconda; chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon and gamay are the principal varieties planted on the north-facing, granitic slopes. Gamay and Chardonnay are the winery specialties!" -Wine Companion.com.au

Traditional vignerons, Marc
Scalzo and Lisa Hernan established a homestead vineyard by planting their own Chardonnay and Shiraz vines on a picturesque site in Beechworth
Piano Piano vineyards are located on a highly sought after golden mile amongst some of Beechworth’s most notable wine producers. They focus on making premium, estate grown single vineyard wines, vintages with a strong sense of place. Rather than impose his own personality on the wines, Marc has always strived to let the vineyard tell its own story. Marc started his wine education around the kitchen table at home. His father Mario introduced him to a wide selection of local and Italian wines. After graduating with a Science degree from Monash University and working for IBM for five years, the lure of wine was strong. Marc then studied Wine Science at Charles Sturt University and has many years of practical experience, including seven years as a winemaker at Brown Brothers and vintages at Giaconda, Seresin Estate (NZ), Delegat’s (NZ) and John Gehrig Wines. Marc is also Chief Winemaker at Rutherglen Estates.
 Piano Piano

In 1997 Marc planted his first vines with Geoff Simpson at Brangie vineyard in King Valley. Oliver’s Blend, named after their eldest son and Mario’s Blend, named after Marc’s father are from the Brangie Vineyard. After searching for seven years Marc and his wife Lisa purchased their property at Beechworth in 2003. The Beechworth hills are famous for granitic soils and fine cool climate wines. They have since planted Chardonnay in 2006 and Shiraz in 2008. Sophie’s Block Chardonnay was named after their daughter Sophie who was born the year the Chardonnay was planted and similarly Henry’s Block Shiraz was planted, the year their youngest son Henry was born.

The famous Beechworth region is known for its iconic wines. Much of this can be attributed to the altitude, granitic soil and climate. Piano Piano vineyard is located on Beechworth-Wangaratta Road, at an altitude of 400m. The Chardonnay is planted on the southeast facing slope, in deep decomposed granitic top soil over rich clay. Sophie’s Block is situated on the coolest part of the site.

This cooler mesoclimate enhances the delicate but powerful flavours in the grapes. Given its proximity to some of Beechworth’s finest vineyards, the Chardonnay is already showing the exciting potential of this site. Five different clones, including the Bernard clones have been close planted at 1.2m x 2.4m rows to maximise intensity and complexity.

Piano Piano Shiraz was planted on the northeast facing slope in decomposed granite soils, characterised by white granitic pebbles on the surface of a decomposed granite loam mix. At a depth of one meter the underlying clay is critical to the water holding capacity of the block whilst the granitic soils supply that rare, ethereal quality that makes Henry’s Block Shiraz so special. To enhance the cool climate quality of the fruit, vine rows have been planted in an east west orientation. Four Shiraz clones were selected to add complexity and spice and the vines were also planted at 1.2m x 2.4m. Piano Pianos Beechworth vines complement the King Valley plantings, established in partnership with Geoff Simpson, in the late 1990s.

This property is situated on the banks of the Hurdle Creek in the lower King valley, on a site perfectly situated for growing red wine grapes. The soil profile of sandy loam sitting on a clay base is ideal for controlling vigor. This ensures the grapes are grown under slight stress, thereby decreasing yields and maximising flavour and colour intensity.

At Peter Seppelt
Wines, over a century and a half of winemaking traditions continues
The Seppelt family has been making wine since the middle of the nineteenth century. Peter Seppelt is the 5th generation to continue the winemaking tradition. Twenty five years ago Karl, Lotte and Peter came across the 120 hectares, which has become Grand Cru Estate. Grand Cru, meaning fine wine, suits our aim of producing fine wine because of perfect elevation in a wonderful cool climate. Grand Cru, means fine wine, and it expresses the Peter Seppelt estate's aim of producing the best, by virtue of a superior vineyard site which enjoys perfect elevation, and a wonderful cool climate.
 Peter Seppelt

All grapes are passionately tended at the Grand Cru Estate estate vineyard, to sustainable and biodynamic principles. Chemicals are used only sparsely, and solely as a supplement to ecologically friendly critical foliar sprays, aerated compost tea, and natural fertilisers. This provides valuable beneficial microbes which translate into a natural defense system within the plant, which then aids to envigor the vines. The Peter Seppelt principles of viticulture are the fundamentals for crafting exceptional Barossa wines.

Within the winery operation's tower building, casual dining is served to visitors of Grand Cru estate. The Wine Store, a traditional building, built by Peter Seppelt in beautiful stone, caters for larger group bookings. This is a wonderful atmospheric setting for a celebration or wedding or a casual relaxing luncheon amoungst the wine barrels for forty people plus. The newer Grand Cru Wood Oven Restaurant is open Friday and Saturday evenings. Dining is available on the beautiful entrance room, fondly nicknamed Red Room.

The famous Grand Cru estate tower has two levels, the ground floor which seats two to six guests for a more private and elegant occasion. The second level comfortably seats up to ten guests who are looking for a memorable evening. It is really a romantic interlude that one cannot help feel like they are living a fairytale. Why not dine outside under the veranda? It’s a perfect spot on a summers evening amid a beautiful South Australian country setting. Booking is essential so Pete can fire up the wood ovens.

An easy one-hour drive from Adelaide, Grand Cru Estate is situated 2kms South of Springton or 6 kms North of Mount Pleasant. Turn off the main road onto R. Dewells road and continue 2km to reach the cellar door and function centre. The beautiful Tower Building is available for private celebrations such as small weddings of up to thirty guests, birthday celebrations and business functions. For larger occasions, the Wine Store Room is pure bliss dining in a working winery. This building seats up to a hundred guests ideal for that romantic wedding set amongst the wine barrels and candelabra. Winemaking and weddings, are both highly specialized affairs here at Grand Cru Estate.

Situated just 5
kilometres east of Martinborough village, Escarpment's 24 hectares of distinctive alluvial gravel, terraced land stretches out along the banks of the Huangarua River
Overlooking the vineyard are the Aorangi Ranges, the very hills made famous by Kupe the great Polynesian voyager who discovered New Zealand, according to Maori legend. Kupe left his three canoes, Nga Waka, on top of the range, giving rise to the now familiar landmark of the district, the three flat-topped hills on top of the range, which resemble unturned canoes. This warrior and his story provide the inspiration for the vineyard's distinctive brand and logo
 Escarpment

Escarpment's aim is simple, to continually produce the very best of tomorrow's definitive New World wines. Complexity, texture and structure are key words and motivators. Under Larry McKenna's leadership the team aims to reward wine lovers with progressive and suggestive wines that encourage them to venture to the edge of wine loving and appreciation. Escarpment Vineyard was established in 1999 as a joint business venture between Robert & Mem Kirby (of Australia's Village Roadshow) and Larry & Sue McKenna. Collectively, these four directors bring to Escarpment a world of experience, skill and understanding to the nurturing and making of fine, deliciously sublime wine.

It goes without saying the impetus behind establishing this vineyard came from the four's deep love for Pinot Noir. Meeting by chance in 1999 through Dr Richard Smith, Larry and Robert quickly hit it off and realised they had more than a love for the grape in common. Serious talk about establishing a definitive New World vineyard began in earnest even then and the idea whose time has come has resulted in one of the most significant vineyard developments in the New Zealand district of Martinborough.

Making the decision to establish their own vineyard was one thing, finding that special piece of land that offered the essential ingredients required for optimal grape growing and wine making was another. Although they considered other wine growing areas in New Zealand, Larry and Sue kept coming back to the Martinborough area. They knew the area intimately having grown grapes there and making wine there for years. They were convinced Martinbrough offered the rich mix of elements they required to grow and make fine New World wine, particularly their pinots.

They soon discovered the Te Muna river terraces across the other side of the hill and knew this was it for them! Basically being an extension of Martinborough's famed terrace land, the Te Muna site offered all the right attributes, with land a-plenty for their purposes. Larry and Sue firmly believe the Te Muna valley is the new future of Martinborough. Evidence for this is seen in the range of new vineyards being established in the area, including much talked about Craggy Range, whose planting alone will double the current output of Martinborough.

A special place and name Te Muna, means secret or special place, and that is exactly how the people at Escarpment feel about the land and what it means to live, grow and make wine there. Deciding the vineyard's name took far more soul searching with ideas bandied about for weeks on end, creating confusion rather than clarity! It wasn't until Robert's brother in law, David Glass, went out walking along the eastern boundary of the property one dusky evening that the inspiration came to him in a flash
