The Kennedy Vineyard
is located on prime land along the east facing slope of the Mount Camel Range on Heathcote’s famed Cambrian soil
John and Patricia Kennedy spent their childhood on farms and have a genuine love for the land and the way of life. In 1981 they began wheat and sheep farming at Corop in north central Victoria. They started with basic machinery, quality soil and plenty of enthusiasm. In 1982 the Kennedys ventured into growing tomatoes. The fact that they had no experience in this form of horticulture was given only passing concern. In 2001, while still growing tomatoes and cereals, they decided to acquire land on the Mount Camel Range. This land has been prized for cereal cropping and in later years much sought after for grape production.

They planted their first ten hectares of Shiraz vines in 2002. Another 10 hectares were planted in 2003 followed by a further planting in 2007. The first vintage was produced in 2005. The Kennedys were thrilled with the quality of the wine and with the feedback. They considered themselves lucky to have many helpful neighbours and have employed vineyard, wine production and marketing experts including the noted winemaker Sandro Mosele.

The Mount Camel Range is a ridge which marks the Heathcote fault that runs through Central Victoria. It comprises Cambrian volcanic rock, which is predominantly Greenstone. This rock has weathered to produce fertile red soil with good drainage properties. This together with the elevation, east facing aspect, moderate temperatures and rainfall (backed up by irrigation if required), achieves the production of high quality grapes.

John and Patricia Kennedy make a very special wine. The Kennedy property was carefully chosen and the viticulture is tailored to growing fruit that is flavoursome, structured and balanced, to be gently crafted into wine. Work in the vineyard is focused on unravelling the intricate differences within the site. Pruning has been carefully undertaken to produce vines which are balanced to evenly ripen the crop load.

Irrewarra vineyard is
located in the heart of the Victorian western agricultural districts, approximately 150 kilometers southwest of Melbourne. Think dairy, beef, sheep, wheat, hay and forestry production
Nick and Gary Farr are father and son winemakers. They stand side by side but aren’t afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Each generation has developed a distinctive winemaking style based on his individual experience and taste. Their respective lines, By Farr and Farr Rising, have received critical acclaim both in Australia and overseas. Nick Farr readily acknowledges the influence of his father in his winemaking and viticultural practices. These have been significantly enhanced by his own vast experience. While he was growing up, Nick worked alongside his father on the family estate and at some of the world's most illustrious domaines.

Nick’s enthusiasm and passion for wine is captivating. An excellent grounding in both the new and old schools of winemaking is the perfect complement to his individual tastes and ideas. The wines are not mainstream, they are expressions of vineyard and the land. That is the promise that's delivered. Irrewarra Vineyard is surrounded by inland lakes and volcanic plains. It is a diverse and beautiful landscape that relies on a high amount of natural rainfall throughout the year. The Western plains are quite exposed to the elements which contributes to the vineyard sites mystic. It is a site that truly reflects the complexities and varietal characters of the vines that are planted in this cool climate region.

The soils across the slope of the site are a mixture of grey sandy clay loams at the south end to dark brown loams with fragments of buckshot and quartz gravels towards the north. All with underlying brown to yellow clays.

Overall the soils remain very moist throughout the year because of the clay based soil profile and annual rainfall of 885mm, resulting in the very attractive damp earthiness character in the fruit and wine.

Staete Landt make
true single vineyard handcrafted wines produced from grapes grown on the family estate on Rapaura Road in Marlborough
Staete Landt is the old Dutch name that Abel Tasman gave to New Zealand when he discovered the land in 1642 and means 'Land discovered in honour of the Governors of the Dutch Republic'. On his voyage Abel Tasman also discovered Tasmania -Van Diemen Land, Fiji and Tonga. At his return to the Dutch Republic it was decided to change Staete Landt to its present name New Zealand.
 Staete Landt

Tremendous efforts are undertaken in the vineyard to get balanced vines delivering consistently ripe healthy fruit with concentrated Marlborough flavours. In the winery these flavours are nurtured by using traditional winemaking methods combined with the latest winemaking technology.

The Staete Landt Vineyard is designed to produce single vineyard, hand made wines with complexity through thorough use of clone, rootstock and soil variation. The winemakers carefully designed the vineyard around the styles of wines they planned to produce, not the reverse. Major focus is on the vineyard where healthy, balanced vines, will in turn deliver consistently ripe fruit with distinct Marlborough flavours.

Through vine thinning and manual leaf plucks the focus is on low yields to grow intensely flavoured grape berries

The Marlborough Environmental Award 1999 was awarded to Staete Landt Vineyard for the successful implementation of an intricate irrigation design taking into consideration soil characteristics, grape varietals and scarce water resources. From an environmental perspective the implementation of the vineyard design proved to be an example for other future vineyard developments.

The vineyard's close proximity to the Wairau river, the main river in the Marlborough valley, produces a continuous airflow which keeps frosts away at crucial times during the grape growing season from budburst September/October through to harvest March/April. The combination of the location of the vineyard, the stony riverbed soils and the heavier soils on the southern part of the vineyard allow production of single vineyard wines with depth and different layers of flavours.

Four main varietals, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris were carefully mapped across these soiltypes in parcels which would give every varietal presence on both dominant soil types. By varying rootstocks and varietal clones a further focus was brought to bare on the distinct terroir. The vineyard is divided into 18 parcels.

The Clare Valley,
set in the folds of the Mount Lofty Ranges 140 kilometres north of Adelaide is proud of it's long history of outstanding winemaking
At around 400 metres elevation the Clare Valley is characterised by cool night time temperatures and warm days. In 1893 a group of South Australian entrepreneurs founded The Stanley Wine Company to produce high quality Clare Valley red and white wines. Subsequent generations of wine drinkers and wine judges have applauded their decision and confirmed their hopes.

Originally there were four pioneers J.H. (Joseph) Knappstein a merchant, Dr O. Wein-Smith a medical practitioner, soliciter Magnus Badger, and John Cristion, who was a brewer of note. Alfred Basedow was employed as General Manager and Winemaker, having learned his craft in Europe. The name Stanley was chosen to identify the company with the local electoral district of Stanley.

The first vintage, in 1895, was a mere 11,356 litres. In 1896 cellars were constructed and each year improvements were made until 1903 when the vintage yielded 378,540 litres of wine. This represented the crush of most of the grapes grown in the Clare Valley district. By 1912, Joseph Knappstein, one of the most enterprising men of his time in South Australia, had bought out the interests of the other three founders and gained control of the company. Since that time the Knappstein family has been associated with the activities of the company.

In 1971 the H.J. Heinz Corporation, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, purchased a controlling interest. The Knappstein family retained key positions in the company and held shares until 1976. In 1984 the Heinz company purchased the Buronga winery in Mildura, New South Wales. The production of Stanley wine casks was transferred from the Leasingham Clare Valley winery to Buronga, which is closer to the supply of fruit for cask wines. The Leasingham operation was then free to concentrate on the production of premium wines.

The Leasingham wineworks was acquired by The Hardy Wine Company in January 1988, when a major upgrade of vineyards, winery, tourism and promotional facilities was begun. Subsequently that year, the Clarevale Co-operative was integrated giving access to further premium fruit. Today the name Leasingham is reserved for premium wines only - the Stanley name continues on a range of wine casks produced at the Buronga winery.

The Clare Valley has gained a reputation for producing some of Australia's finest premium wines, in particular Riesling and Shiraz. The region's early reputation was based around the production of Australia's finest Rieslings, but in more recent times the reds have excelled. The contemporary Australian palate for reds is perfectly suited to the region's growing conditions, which translates into big rich generous styles that are so much in demand.
