We are often asked about where the fruit for our premium wines comes from. Our winemaker and viticulturist work closely with a small group of carefully selected independent growers that have become the foundation of our Redbank wine family. These family-run vineyards offer unique, subtle soil and altitude differences that provide our winemakers with an opportunity to create distinctive wines reflecting the finest attributes of the regions. Our fruit for the Long Paddock and King Valley wines is sourced from high-altitude vineyards in Victoria’s high country, from the Alpine, King and Ovens Valleys and other premium Victorian regions.
