Mount Burrumboot Estate
was born when the wine bug bit Andrew and Cathy Branson
In 1999 they planted vines on the Home Block of the Branson family farm 'Donore', located on the slopes of Mount Burrumboot, on the Mount Camel Range above Colbinabbin. Originally the vineyard was just another diversification of an already diverse farming enterprise of cereals, prime lambs and irrigated clover hay. The first wine was made in 2001 by contract, and 2002 saw the first vintage wine made by Cathy in the machinery shed, surrounded by headers and tractors. The original primitive winemaking operation was eventually refurbished into a new 50 tonne winery in August 2002.
 Mount Burrumboot

The Mount Burrumboot Estate winemaking philosophy is simple. As farmers, the winemakers allow themselves to be guided by nature, and intervene as little as possible in the vineyard and the winery, and only when necessary. Good wine is made in the vineyard, and winemaker Cathy Branson ensures that the wine is carefully and gently handled during the vinification process. Careful use of oak allows complex characters to develop, seamlessly blending with the massive black fruit characters, allowing the vines and the fruit to be fully expressed in the final wine.

Mount Burrumboot use traditional methods and gentle processing, ensuring that harsh characters do not end up in the bottle. An old fashion basket press is utilized to obtain the wine from the must, and finish fermentation in a selection of French and American oak barriques. From then on, the wine is racked several times, and topped with minimal additions. Red wines remain unfiltered to maintain the integrity and full fruit characters, and to tell the story of the vines, the terroir, and the vineyard.

Mount Burrumboot Estate sits at the northern end of Australia's newest and most feted Shiraz region Heathcote

Here the Heathcote's terra rossa reds are redefining Australian Shiraz both at home and internationally, and the land has become keenly sought after by large and small wine companies, with premium prices being paid.

Regarded at home and internationally as one of the finest Shiraz producing regions in Australia, Heathcote is producing outstanding, highly sought-after wine and fruit. Low yielding vines produce Shiraz that is distinctively purple/black, with inky dark berry fruits, complex and intense, with formidable depth and length, that has become the hallmark of this new region. Indeed, some Heathcote wines have already achieved icon status - Jasper Hill, and Wild Duck Creek in particular.

The secret appears to be the terroir of the area. The red Cambrian soils here are deep and ancient, 500 million years old, with seams of jasper running through, and bluestone at the northern end of the Mount Camel Range. It is this soil, with its ability to hold water, but drain well, coupled with a warm, dry climate, that consistently produces super premium wines.

Monichino are all
about honest wines made from good fruit, grown to a greatly loved vineyard, by fair dinkum people with endless passion
The rolling hills of Italy's Piemonte and the flat plains of Victoria's Goulburn Valley are worlds apart. The classic tradition of wine making however, has transferred flawlessly from one hemisphere to the other. When Carlo Monichino migrated from the Asti region of northern Italy, he brought his winemaking skills with him. Carlo and Margaret Monichinon established their first vineyard on the Australian continent at Katunga in central Victoia's Goulburn Valley in 1962. The Monichinon family recognized that the rich soil and excellent climatic conditions make this region ideal for grape growing. Vines were first planted here during the 1880s, one of the oldest and most enduring grape growing regions in Australia.

Originally planted to the more ubiquitous Australian grape varieties, for the production of locally popular styles of wine, Monichino vineyards now yields harvests of Barbera, Sangiovese and Pinot Grigio. Exquisitely balanced, flavourful and refreshing wines in the fashion of Italy's most renowned viticultural precincts, are a specialty of Monichino vineyard wineworks. The high quality of fruit harvested off 26 estate owned and operated hectares of low yielding vines, can only be achieved by close husbanding and hard wok, by heavy pruning and light supplementary watering. This increases the intensity of flavour and emphasizes the natural character of the varietal grape. The result is a range of high quality, hand crafted wines, offering rich aromas and full bodied palates.

Goulburn Valley is heaven sent for agriculture, Monichino's vines are planted to what are essentially, top notch farming terrains, premium Moira loams, soils that are ideal for wine grapes. Monichino Wines remain a true family concern, extended family and neighbours are all involved. Carlo Monichino' eldest chose to study wine science and to do vintage overseas before assuming the role of chief winemaker.

Estate harvests of Pinot Grigio, Barbera and Sangiovese, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, White Frontignac and Orange Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz, are all of exceptional quality every year. Table wines, sparkling and fortifieds, are all on the Monichino wine list. Some vineyard blocks are left on the vine to develop into the luscious dessert styles, parcels of noble rot affected grapes are selectively picked for crafting into luxurious botrytis wines.

Visitors to Monichino are welcome and the cellar door is open to all. Call in for a chat over a large range of award winning wines for tasting, Monichino's friendly staff will help you with your wine selection and can help with information on food and wine matches. Take the time to relax and savour a locally made cheese platter in the well laid out picnic grounds overlooking Monichino vineyard. Above all, sample the complete range of Monichino wines and you're certain to be impressed!

Huia is focused
on hand crafting fine unique wines expressing the richness of Marlborough grapes, from the vineyard through to the table
Huia is located in the Wairau Valley, in Marlborough, at the north eastern tip of the South Island. Claire and Mike Allan established Huia Vineyards Ltd in 1996, a small private company committed to the production of premium and classical Marlborough wines. Claire and Mike were drawn to Marlborough by the intense fruit flavours in the wines. They gained further winemaking experience in key Marlborough wineries, along with an extended spell in Champagne, France.

The Allan's river terrace Rapaura Road property was purchased in late 1990. The vineyard was planted with the finished wine blends in mind. Blending modern and traditional techniques Huia makes seven premium wine varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Vintage Huia Brut. Imported Burgundy chardonnay and pinot noir cultivars have since been planted and are in full production. The sauvignon blanc vines are mass selection.

Since then Huia has leased 6.8 adjoining hectares to be planted with Sauvignon Blanc and some Pinot Gris. Huia also purchased another 16 hectares of bare land on the south side of the Wairau Valley. The soil is loam with a clay layer over free draining shingle. This has been planted predominately with Sauvignon Blanc and a smaller acreage of Pinot Gris. Grapes are sourced from these home vineyards and a small group of selected growers from specific sites around the Wairau valley.

A number of soil patterns are found throughout the valley, even within single vineyards, leading to significant variation in quality and style depending on the grape source. The soils near the Wairau River may have deposits from flood in the last 35 years. In the central part of the valley, such as middle Rapaura, the soils are up to a few hundred years old.

There are terraces of greywacke and silt running side by side over shingle in the central part of the valley. The oldest soils in the valley such as the Brancott are up to 7000 years old. Even these are considered very young soils. The older soils in the southern part of the valley have increasing amount of clay deposits the closer they are to the Wither Hills.

Huia grows Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris on two primary estate vineyards. Both the Winsome (located in Riverlands) and the Winery Blocks have been managed under the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand scheme for the first time in 2004. To ensure NZ stays clean and green for future generations, Huia has become a member of the New Zealand Sustainable Winegrowers. This scheme encourages member growers to embrace appropriate, environmentally and economically sustainable wine grape production methods for New Zealand conditions. The Huia Estate's Cellar Door team welcomes you all year round, 7 days a week from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm.

 Cheviot Bridge

Cheviot Bridge provides services across the wine industry value chain including the production, distribution, marketing and sale of wine. Cheviot Bridge provides the framework for the production, marketing and sales of brands such as Long Flat, Braided River and Thirsty Lizard. Fruit is sourced from the Cheviot Kirribilly Vineyard Property Group and Cheviot Kirribilly Limited which currently manages approximately 1,300 hectares of vineyards.

Kirribilly Vineyard Management Services was incorporated in South Australia 1996. The primary function of this company has been the professional establishment and subsequent ongoing care and husbandry of large-scale viticultural projects throughout South Australia. Kirribilly Limited was formed after this time to take over the development role of the business beyond the group’s first project in the Clare Valley of South Australia. The combination of a management team and fully qualified and experienced onsite management has allowed this dynamic and well established development company to actively pursue the opportunities provided by the export demand for premium Australian wine, through the expansion of large professionally managed vineyards.

Kirribilly has embraced the lateral function of new planning legislation and pioneered the transportation of Murray water in conjunction with SA Water and the South Australian State Government. The total development expenditure since inception now exceeds AUD100 million. The vineyard management company now has an annual operating revenue exceeding AUD10 million. Kirribilly has established in excess of 1,200 hectares of vineyards since 1997, which will produce thousands of tonnes of wine grapes a year from three areas of South Australia’s premium grape producing regions.

Kirribilly Estate Clare Valley was the first Community Title vineyard to be developed in Australia. This project saw the successful development of 227 hectares (560 acres) of premium variety red and white wine grapes. The vineyard is divided into 20 Community Titles and was planted in 1997. The Stage II vineyard comprises 141 hectares (349 acres) of red grape varieties. It consists of 34 Community titles and was planted in 1999. The 286 hectare (707 acre) Birchmores Vineyard Langhorne Creek development was one of only a handful of large-scale vineyards established in one year in Australia. Completion was achieved in November 1998. The wine grapes are contracted to five major wine companies. The fruit is destined for both the export and domestic wine markets. The vineyard is divided into 54 Community Titles.

The development of 163 hectares (403 acres) of the Schobers Road Vineyard in the Clare Valley was completed in September 2001. This vineyard was established in part to supply the resurgence of the Clare Valley’s icon white wine – Riesling. Sixty-six hectares of the vineyard is planted with this variety. The balance is planted with red varieties, some of which will provide winemakers with rare blending opportunities such as Malbec and Mataro. These varieties remain scarce and highly prized from this area of the Clare Valley. This vineyard has experienced textbook growing conditions and is the youngest of Kirribilly’s managed vineyards. The project has 47 Community Titles and is contracted to four major wine companies.
