We are a family of winemakers with three small vineyards. At the Arthurs Creek vineyard there is a winery restaurant, a cellar door and B&B accommodation, all on site, all family owned and operated. Located in the beautiful Yarra Valley region of Victoria, our vines were planted thirty five years ago, and our grapes are hand picked and the wines made on site by the three winemakers.
When you come to Shaws Road Winery we want you to share the beautiful rural views, the sense of change that comes with the seasons, the pleasure in enjoying great wine created from our own fruit. Come out to our place. Enjoy the views. Pat the dogs. Warm yourself by the log fire (or take advantage of the Air Conditioning). Enjoy a delicious meal with a glass of great wine. We look forward to your company!
