The rows of vines are planted three metres apart, but in-row vine spacings vary across the vineyard, depending on grape variety and suitability to soil type.
Hand-pruning is undertaken over winter by the vineyard staff, regardless of the weather in the Yarra Valley. As the vineyard has grown in size from the original 30 acre block to the current 70 acres, new varieties have been planted to supplement the traditional cabernet, pinot, shiraz, and chardonnay.
A steep west facing hillside purchased in the 90s was terraced and planted with Portuguese varieties to take advantage of the hot afternoon sun. An East facing slope below these varieties is planted to merlot, mouvedre and petit verdot.
Yarra Yering has not stood still, the endeavor to produce better wines is pursued constantly in the winery and vineyard, maintaining its status as one of the best in the Yarra Valley.
