Warramate

Region: Yarra Valley

Warramate vineyards are located directly behind Yarra Yering, in the Yarra Valley. Jack and June Church began planting 5 acres of vines; Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot in 1970.

In 2000 their son David decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a winemaker. He planted a further 12 acres of vines adding Pinot Noir and additional Shiraz and Cabernet plantings. Jack passed away in 2005 and David continued making the wine until he made the difficult decision to sell.

Warramate is now owned by the Kaesler/Nashwauk/Clare Wine Co and Yarra Yering fold of brands.
