Greenstone Vineyards - Yarra Glen

Outstanding views, elegant hand-crafted wines from our Yarra Valley and Heathcote vineyards

Greenstone Vineyards is comprised of two distinguished, outstanding & unique vineyards, one in Heathcote & the other in the Yarra Valley, each planted in ancient & complex soils imparting their individual characteristics into our range of wines.

It's our mission to make wines that display elegance, purity & layers of complexity, each evoking the season & site from which they're grown.

Established in 1983, the Yarra Glen vineyard is situated on 33 hectares at the base of the Christmas Hills with 27 hectares under vine. A cool climate region, the longer ripening periods favour the region's iconic varietals - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.

These 3 varietals, along with Sauvignon Blanc, were the first to be planted in 1983/84 with the addition of small parcels of Viognier and Petit Verdot following. Staggered planting has provided a wide range of maturity in the vines and these variances can be highlighted within specifically handcrafted parcels. The gently sloping and undulating land of this "Yarra Floor" vineyard is moderately warmer than its Upper Yarra counterparts.

Composed of grey silty loams formed from 400+ million year old Silurian mudstones and degraded by hundreds of millions of years of alluvial activity, these old and hungry soils are naturally low in nutrients. This is critical to controlling vegetative growth (and thus disease prevention) ensuring that, during the most critical period of fruit ripening, the vines' energy is focused towards low yields of intensely flavoured fruit.

These unique soils also provide a consistent nutritional base for the vines, producing wines of varietal intensity together with complexity and elegance.
