Established in 1991 by Ivan and Ljubica Juric, the winery is located in scenic West Gippsland near the town of Noojee. We purchased the bush block in 1988, cleared the land, built a small cottage and had fun on weekends in the beautiful countryside, and then Ivan decided he wanted to grow his own grapes and make wine. The Sauvignon Blanc that Ivan entered in his first ever wine show won him a Gold medal and also a trophy for the best white wine in the amateur section at the Victorian Wines show at Seymour in 1997. Inspired by his early success he went on to plant additional vines in two further stages until he had a total of six acres under vine. Our wines truly are boutique single vineyard cool climate wines. We produce Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Sparkling white wines. Also on offer is our fine Grappa, a grape brandy distilled from pressed skins.
