We are often asked about where the fruit for our premium wines comes from. Our winemakers and viticulturists work closely with a dedicated "family" of carefully selected independent growers. These small family-run vineyards offer unique and subtle soil and altitude differences that provide our winemakers with an opportunity to create distinctive wines reflecting the finest attributes of the regions. Our fruit for the Long Paddock and King Valley wines is sourced from high-altitude vineyards in Victoria’s high country, from the Alpine, King and Ovens Valleys.
The magnificent 15 hectare Myrrhee Ridge vineyard has been added to the Redbank portfolio. This uniquely located vineyard in the mountain range which overlooks the township of Whitfield in the King Valley has supplied Shiraz grapes for Redbank wines since it was established 10 years ago.
Our flagship Shiraz, The Anvil, is crafted from fruit from the Beechworth region. These are two very different wine growing regions. We have worked up a map and facts about some of Vicoria's wine regions that you may find interesting. CLICK HERE.
Beechworth has long been recognised as a classic Shiraz region. The individual vineyard from which these grapes are harvested contains dark red clay soils, and this, combined with an ideal climate for this variety, produces a wonderfully stylish and rich red wine.
