Warner Vineyard

It's a little unusual that a vineyard can become quite famous for supplying its fruit to others whilst it doesn't produce its own wine.  The Warner Vineyard in Beechworth until recently was just that - well-known and highly regarded fruit source to a number of wineries, Giaconda foremost amongst them.  The seven acres of vines were planted in the mid 1990s to a mix of Shiraz, Chardonnay and Roussanne, and for many years the entire production was sold to Giaconda, forming the basis for Rick's 'Warner Vineyard' Shiraz, 'Nantua' Chardonnay and 'Aeolia' Roussanne.warner.jpg

Today some Shiraz is still sold to Giaconda, and Gary Mills purchases all three varieties for his own labels.  And a proportion of fruit is retained and produced under the 'Warner Vineyard' label itself.  Other makers from time to time (depending on vintage) may also purchase small parcels of fruit.

The soils are ancient decomposed granite, sitting at high altitude (nearly 500m), and this allows for a relatively cool climate despite this part of northern Victoria being generally warm (or hot if you visit in Summer!).
