Wantirna Estate

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

"Established in 1963 and with an annual production of fewer than 1000 cases in total, Wantirna Estate ranks among the elite of the Yarra Valley. Handcrafted terrior-driven wines are a reflection of meticulous attention to detail in all aspects of viticulture and winemaking, and a vineyard site that is naturally low-yielding. "You don't need too many fingers to count the number of 'cult' wineries of the 1970s and early 1980s that are still in the hands of their original owners. Fewer still are actually performing better today than ever before," as Jeremy Oliver puts it, "Wantirna Estate is one such winery and its modern success is a culmination of experience, the introduction of fresh ideas and a proven ability to learn."" - Cellarhand

"All our wines have gradually been renamed to include the names of the four grand daughters. Added to that has been an illustration by the well-known cartoonist and artist, Michael Leunig depicting something about each of the girls’ personalities." - Wantirna
