Warramate Wines is a small, independently owned vineyard in Victoria’s Yarra Valley. It was established in 1970 on a spectacular north-facing slope overlooking the central Yarra Valley.
With plantings of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay it produces wines of distinction, depth and intensity from its hand-tended and non-irrigated vines.
Jack and June Church first started planting vines in 1970 after an extensive search throughout Victoria for a plot that would be suitable for their dream vineyard.
Dr Bailey Carrodus from Yarra Yering had just started planting vines on his property below the Warramate site that Jack and June Church eventually settled on.
