Wilson Vineyard DJW Riesling DANIEL JAMES WILSON WOULD WRITE DJW RULES ON SCHOOL BOOK COVERS, desks, garden edgings and wet concrete whenever the opportunity arose. In 1997 DJW established a small 5½ acre plot of Riesling in the highest and most fertile corner of the family property.

The hand picked harvest from this supreme site was kept separate and DJW Riesling went on to claim a string of prestigious trophies.
The name Arthurs
Creek goes back to Henry Arthur, who came to Melbourne with John Batman and settled on the creek to which he gave his name (or the name of his uncle and patron, Governor Arthur of Tasmania)
Arthur's Creek runs into Diamond Creek and thence into the Yarra. As river valleys are defined up the tributaries as well as up the main stream, the estate falls within the Yarra Valley winegrowing region, within a sub-region often referred to as the Western Edge. The vineyard had been owned since the 1890's by the Schultz family, formerly of Prussia. At the back of the property there is a bridge crossing the creek, was known as Schultz's Bridge.
 Arthurs Creek Estate

Bought as a sheep grazing farm, the property was home to a few hundred sheep, and a few head of cattle. In the mid seventies, the then Italian farm manager soon saw the potential of the land for vineyard, based on the idea that the farm reminded him of his uncle's farm in Italy. So began the trial planting, which was then followed in the next few years by around sixteen acres of vines being planted. Since then the vineyard has been the main focus of all who have worked on the property.

The currently productive vines were planted in 1976, and the winery was built in 1983. It was not until 1992 that the vineyard began releasing their wines commercially, after several vintages of production and cellaring. Sales under the estate's own label (designed by Daryl Carnahan) commenced in 1993.

Serious competitions on the wine show circuit began in 1994. In that year Arthurs Creek Estate entrants at the Royal Melbourne Wine Show, the Victorian Wines Show and the Southern Victoria Wine Show claimed a total of 6 bronze medals, 5 silver medals, one gold medal and one gold medal plus trophy for best in show. In 1995 the same three shows awarded Arthurs Creek 7 bronze medals, 6 silver medals and two gold medals. 1n 1996 the Royal Melbourne Wine Show and the Victorian Wines Show produced a total of 7 bronze medals, two silver and two gold.

In 1990 Arthurs Creek closed operation of their on site wineworks, after having outgrown it's capacity. Production was then shifted to the Mitchelton Winery, under the supervision of our wine consultant Gary Baldwin. In 2001 the centre of production was moved to the Yering Station wineworks at Yarra Glen, where it is still being made.

The estate property also runs Angus Cattle over the hills and pasture to keep the property as fire-safe as possible. At present there are 19 acres of productive vines, comprising approximately 10 acres of cabernet sauvignon, 7 acres of chardonnay, and 2 acres of merlot. The estate is fortunate enough to enjoy a couple of kilometres of creek frontage, which in the last few years has been co-managed in partnership with Melbourne Water.

Bleasdale is Australia's
second oldest, still functioning family owned winery. Bleasdale's wines are the stuff of legend and receive accolades around the world every year
Established in 1850 by English migrant Frank Potts, the Bleasdale vineyards are situated on the fertile flood plains of the Bremer River which run parallel to Langhorne Creek. The area is a low rainfall, cool climate region which produces outstanding wines year after year. Ironically, it was Frank Potts abilities as a sailor that led him to Langhorne Creek to live the life of a landlubber. He saw the potential of the region when he explored it in the 1850s, convinced that the stands of tall red gums promised fertile soils and reliable water. Being a nautical man, it's not surprising that Frank Potts chose to plant a vineyard in a place that for a week or two occasionally becomes an inland sea. He planted his first vines in 1858 selling wine to Thomas Hardy, before expanding his holdings to 30 acres in the 1860s. Since Pott's founding efforts, Langhorne Creek's alluvial soils and favourably cool climate, nurtured by maritime breezes, has attracted many famous winemakers.

Langhorne Creek experiences natural floods from the high rainfall that gushes out of the Adelaide Hills and heads towards the sea from time to time. It occurred to Frank that with the addition of floodgates across the river he could control the water for a short period and give his vines a deep soaking drink just before the parching Australian summer. Langhorne Creek receives an average annual rainfall of just 380mm per year and flood events provide enough moisture in the rich deep soil profile of the flood plain to carry vines in these areas through the dry summer months. The majority of the vast vineyard plantings use modern and efficient drip and sub-surface irrigation practices to maintain the water needs of the vines.

Bleasdale is today still owned and operated by the Potts family, the fifth generation of winemakers. They lead a dedicated winemaking and cellar team who are very proud of their work. When you've been around for six generations of winemaking you accumulate innate viticultural skills and an affinity to the environment. Access to water, coupled with cooling breezes from Lake Alexandrina reduce evening temperatures and provide mild even growing seasons, making Langhorne Creek the ideal wine growing region. Despite this, much of the Langhorne Creek's fruit went into multi-regional blends and wasn't acknowledged until the 1990s when a small group of long term family growers, including Bleasdale, started promoting pure Langhorne Creek wines.

Traditionally a red wine grape region best known for full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet blends, as well as elegant Shiraz, the region also produces exceptional white and fortified wines. Langhorne Creek is now the centre of a vibrant grape growing and winemaking community which regularly wins national and international awards.

The historic Bleasdale cellars, constructed from red gum and limestone, have been classified by the National Trust and are listed on the State and National Heritage Registers. The ancient winery houses a massive red gum lever press which fifth generation winemaker, Michael Potts still uses once a year to make a small batch, limited release wine.

Whilst Bleasdale is steeped in yesterday's history it has been outfitted with the latest technology. Today's winery still abides by the family traditions, retaining the philosophy of producing honest, consistent and reliable wines. Watch for the cobwebs as you clamber down the old redgum ladder into the bowels of Bleasdale winery. Duck your head and enter the old domed cellar built in 1892 and gaze around the walls at French and American oak puncheons, hogsheads and barriques, brim full of Cabernet and Shiraz. They are all destined for Bleasdale's super premium Frank Potts and Generations flagships, but that's years away. For now each parcel of each variety is matured separately, with up to 200 different wines all expressing their own individuality based on microclimate and soil.

Greenstone Point vineyards
are located within the renowned Marlborough wine region of New Zealand
Marlborough is well worth a visit not only famous for its famous wines, but also its picturesque coastline of the Marlborough Sounds, featuring many sheltered bays and harbours. Greenstone Point Winery started in 1997 as a joint venture company, Greenstone Point now has its own vineyard in Marlborough and produces wine from the company owned vineyards as well as selected Marlborough growers. Currently Greenstone Point produces around 15,000 cases per annum.
 Greenstone Point

To date Greenstone Point wines have found an overwhelmingly favourable response throughout New Zealand, Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom. Greenstone Point management have ambitious plans for the company, the goal being to acquire more land for planting and to be a dominant middle sized New Zealand wine company offering premium wines at value for money price points.

The Greenstone Point winemakers hold a passionate belief that great wine is made in the vineyard, consequently a real emphasis is placed on vineyard management. This is done by intensive canopy management during the summer, beginning with VSP trellising systems. The labour intensive vineyards management allows the winegrowers to carry out practices such as shoot positioning, shoot spacing, shoot thinning, leaf plucking and fruit thinning.

Throughout winter the following year’s crop is prepared by individually cane pruning each individual vine by hand. Very labour intensive stuff but central to the philosophy that the best possible fruit is necessary for the crafting of the highest possible quality wines.

The Greenstone Point Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from the winery's estate vineyards as well as local growers. Gently pressed and settled prior to undergoing a cool fermentation they both display the floral aromas and lively tropical highlights that have made Marlborough the international ambassador of New Zealand's wines.

The Chardonnay is from vineyard sites in Marlborough and Waipara. After a gentle pressing, a portion undergoes 50% wood fermentation and extended lees contact to develop rich and creamy characters. The Greenstone Point Pinot Noir is hand plunged three times per day and spends an average of 13 days on skins. This is a beautifully balanced Marlborogh Pinot which displays rich earthy and berry fruit flavours.
