BASS PHILLIP

Bass Phillip is named after George Bass and Arthur Phillip – men of great pioneering spirit, foresight and leadership during the nineteenth century. Phillip Jones first established the Bass Phillip vineyards, many years later, in the southeastern corner of Australia in 1979, specialising in high-quality pinot noir and chardonnay wines.  

Winemaking at Bass Phillip is uncompromising and driven by the respect for nature. The vineyards are organic since 1993 and biodynamic since 2002. All wine production process at Bass Phillip is guided by the cosmic rhythms that impart energy and vibrancy into the wines.

BASS RIVER WINERY

Bass River is a tiny winery that bears a resemblance to a small domain in South Gippsland - in size, approach, passion and very often in the glass. The vignerons - the Butera Family - emphasise producing small quantities of premium wines grown only from the estate vineyeard, expressing terrior and organic principles to hand craft distinctive regional wines.

The land is bordered by the Bass River and the southern end of the Strzelecki Ranges. The vineyard is ideally located experiencing cool conditions from the nearby maritime elements. The Butera family has nurtured the land since 1983, with three hectares of vines following some 15 years later in 1998 to construct the House Block. A further three hectares were planted on the west bank of the Bass River in 2006. These two parcels of vines provide the unique character of Bass River wines.

BLUE GABLES VINEYARD

Blue Gables boasts four varieties spread across 7 acres: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Shiraz. We strive to produce premium quality wine, year on year.

The vineyard, Blue Gables, is appropriately named after the picturesque farmhouse on the property where Alistair & Catherine Hicks and their three children live.

Situated high on a hill, we have an exposed site that is warmer than most in Gippsland by day, yet with the absence of any sea breeze, our nights cool off significantly. These day/night temperature extremeties are perfect for viticulture and this unique microclimate has resulted in the wines displaying intense varietal flavour and elegance.

D'ANGELO ESTATE VINEYARD

D’Angelo Estate Vineyard originated in Montrose, Yarra Valley, in 1994 when Domenico D’Angelo started planting Pinot Noir grapes for himself. By 1997 the Pinot Noir grapes were ready to be harvested for the very first vintage. From the small amount of grapes that were harvested, Benny D’Angelo made the first batch of wine, two barrels in total.

D’Angelo Estate Vineyard now comprises of two vineyards, one in Officer and the other in Montrose, Victoria. The topography of Officer makes an excellent site for growing cool climate varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Shiraz and Viognier, which is ideal for bringing out the complex flavours of all these grapes. From the Yarra Valley Vineyard, D’Angelo Estate produces Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. Both of these vineyards are family owned and are maintained by the D’Angelo family. Benny also produces Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from a premium low cropping vineyard in Langhorne Creek (SA).

NARKOOJEE WINERY

Narkoojee, meaning “place of flowers”, was a dairy farm owned and operated by Edna and Athelstan Friend, since the early 1940s. Their son Harry planted the first experimental vines back in 1980 and with his wife Val, moved to the property from Melbourne in 1995. Narkoojee had very humble beginnings with the Cellar Door operating out of a small weatherboard bungalow at the back of Harry and Val Friend’s house. The grapes were taken to the old butter factory in Glengarry, which served as their first winery. Today the winery enjoys a five red star status as rated by James Halliday.
