more than just a winery
When you hear a wine described as "estate bottled" or see "estate" on a wine label, it means the grapes are grown on land owned by the winery. Shaws Road wines are estate grown wines- made from grapes from our own vineyards in Arthurs Creek & Strathewen.
The wines are produced on site at the winery, and sold to a growing list of local restaurants, wine shops and loyal customers. This is a Yarra Valley winery (OK, way up the western end of the Yarra Valley, but nonetheless classified by the Victorian Wine Industry association as a Yarra Valley winery!) producing wines true to the region - dry crisp whites and full bodied reds.
Come along to the winery and talk direct to the Wine Makers - we will be happy to show you around and explain the story behind each wine.
We are open the third Sunday of each month from February to December, and for special Nillumbik Region wine events.
~Sunday 15 March - Harvest Open Day ~
On our inaugural Harvest Open Day we are inviting you to join us to help out with picking the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes (9.00am start) then crushing and pressing the Pinot Noir, followed by a light lunch at 1.00pm for the willing helpers. Come along to be a wine-maker for a day! Bring your hat, old shoes and old clothes. We will supply the secateurs and lunch. Wines (from previous vintages!) will be available by the glass to purchase to enjoy with lunch.
Wine tastings and sales from the Cellar Door will be available as usual. Come along and join in the fun.
