Our wine philosophy is simple..

  • In short, our winemaking is very simple and it all starts in the vineyard. Good quality fruit, picked at flavour ripeness, is fermented and gently cared for, with minimal intervention , through its journey from vineyard/orchard to bottle.

    A.P. Marks, Winemaker
We are open from 11.00am to 5.00pm on Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays and other times by chance.  So see you soon!

You can even catch the train and arrange for us to collect you from the  Castlemaine station.

Or if you’re feeling ultra motivated, you can ride out to see us too like these crazy kids do each year.
