Greenstone Winery, formerly known as Greenstone of Heathcoat, was established on a land parcel measuring forty hectares close to Colbinabbin, which is located to the north of Melbourne. Because of the several types of soil that may be found in the area, the town was given the name “Greenstone.” The primary objective of the winery is to make premium wines that are of artisan quality in limited quantities. In 2015, Greenstone took ownership of the Yarra Ridge winery as well as the surrounding vines. In addition, they opened a new cellar door at this facility, which is situated one hour outside of the Central Business District of Melbourne. Han Tao Lau, Amanda Flynn, and Sam Atherton are the three people in charge of winemaking at the vineyard. They are dedicated to making wines of exceptional quality from the Yara Valley and each possesses a significant amount of expertise working in the wine industry.
Because Greenstone Vineyards has an emphasis on low yields and plants less than 4,500 vines per hectare, the concentration and quality of their grapes are able to be maintained at a high level.
Heathcote and the Yarra Valley are the two regions in which Greenstone Vineyards is home to its respective vineyards. A total of 4,500 vines are planted across each hectare in order to maintain low yields. The grapes that are grown in this region are known for their superior quality. The region’s soil, climate, and rainfall are ideal for the production of vines, making it a prime location for winemaking.
The Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Mataro grapes are the most common ones to succeed in this region’s climate and soil. For the creation of their world-famous red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines, the winery chooses only the highest-quality grapes. Greenstone Vineyard crafts wines that are expressive of the singular qualities of their home region as well as their own tenacity and dedication. From Thursday through Monday, customers have access to the tasting room at the cellar door, where they may sample a variety of the winery’s products while taking in the breathtaking scenery of the Yarra Valley.
