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 1969 after an extensive search throughout Victoria for a plot that would be suitable for their dream vineyard. Today the wines are made by Yarra Yerring winemaker Sarah Crowe having been purchased by Yarra Yerings owners in 2011.
James Halliday writes that Warramate is ‘A long-established and perfectly situated winery reaping the full benefits of its 40-year-old vines; recent plantings have increased production. All the wines are well made’.
