READ ABOUT Warramate Winery...

First established in 1970 by the Church family, this boutique family operation is a hidden gem of the Yarra Valley, producing - in particular - some of the finest straight Shiraz in the Valley.

Warramate History

The first vines were planted at Warramate in 1969 by Jack and June Church and were recognised as some of the first in the 're-establishment' of the valley, alongside neighbours Dr Carrodus at Yarra Yering and Guillaume de Pury across the lane at Yeringberg.

Warramate Vineyard

Unlike many of the more recent plantings in the valley, the Warramate vineyard is all dry grown, which helps to concentrate the flavours and up the flavour intensity (by naturally reducing yields). The vineyard too is hand-pruned and hand harvested (hands on winegrowing!) with an emphasis on sustainability; mulching and green crop manures are standard practice. Organic methods are scientifically trialled and used wherever possible.

Warramate Winemaking

The Warramate wines were made by Jack Church until 2000, when Jack's son David Church took over the reins (after obtaining a degree in Wine Science from Charles Sturt University). David’s winemaking is characterised by finesse, elegance and refinement. The wines reflect this with complexity and subtlety and technical excellence.

Warramate Wine Types

The range here is small but focused, with a single oddity - Riesling. The winery also produces a Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Merlot and two different Shiraz.
