Formerly the site of Brown Brothers Everton Hills vineyard, Doctor Russell Bourne purchased the property and founded Battely in 1998. Brown Brothers had abandoned the property some years before despite the quality of fruit due to its low yields, a factor that attracted its new owners. The vineyards are planted on a unique North-facing ampitheatre block based on granitic soils giving very good grape ripeness.
The name Battely came to be after Bourne discovered the property was owned by Captain Battely during the goldrush days. The coat of arms featured on the wine label belongs to the Battely family and originated from Yorkshire England.
As both winemaker and viticulturalist, Bourne produced his first vintage in 2001 and between tending to his grapes, still finds time to continue practicing as an Anesthetist.
Set on the foot of the Victorian Alps, just outside of Beechworth, Battely is one of a number of boutique wineries in the region. Climates are typically sub-alpine, relatively cool and frosty with soil varying with elevation, from sandy along the floodplain, to reddish brown granite higher up. Despite its small size, Beechworth is a premier Victorian region with the likes of Chapoutier and Giaconda helping it to build a reputation for the region’s range of stylish and characterful wines.
