VINTAGE is here and Squitchy Lane is a hive of activity as the many varieties of grapes are harvested from our Gruyere property.

Come and join the team at Squitchy Lane, as Steve Sadlier, viticulturist, explains in detail the wine harvesting process- from planting to picking and crushing.

Challenge your taste buds on fresh grapes snipped from the vine of Merlot, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc. A blind tasting is sure to test your palate.

We hope to also offer a small selection of grape juices, fresh from the press, for you to try.

An intimate experience at a boutique vineyard where you can speak directly to the producer.

If you've always been intrigued by the how and why of a Yarra Valley harvest, drop in to the cellar door between 11am- 4pm and get involved with vintage 2012!

Of course the finished product will also be available for sale and tastings on the day. Sit back under our umbrellas and enjoy a glass of wine in the peaceful setting of our Yarra Valley property.
