From the careful selection of our vineyard sites more than 20 years ago, and the planting of varieties and clones that take full advantage of the soil and climate, to the judicious management of these blocks in the years since then, we are able to ensure that we consistently deliver the best fruit possible to the winery, year after year.
Established in 1994, our Hunter Valley vineyard, Tallavera Grove, enjoys a warm coastal climate specialising in the traditional local varieties of Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Shiraz. Italian varieties Vermentino and Sagrantino flourish, adding an exotic edge to the wines we create here.
One of the special features of this vineyard it the diversity of soil types, elevation and aspect. The 70 acres (28 hectares) of vines grow on terra rossa clay loams on limestone, red duplex loams over marly shales or alluvial brown loams on the creek flats.
Tallavera Grove is the home of our cellar door. Come and drink in the spectacular views with a glass of Carillion Wine.
Established in 1997, our 75 acre (30Ha) Carillion vineyard is located on the volcanic slopes of Mt Canobolas at an elevation of 740 - 800m.
The key to this region is the cool to cold climate and high altitude, meaning we enjoy an extended growing season with plentiful sunlight hours.
Red/brown volcanic clay loams on light-medium clays provide the base for growing premium Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in the whites, with the focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Pinot Noir in the reds. Recent plantings of cult Italian varieties, Verduzzo and Aglianico are showing great results, making unique and intriguing wines.
Stonefields, established in 1997, is located in the famous Limestone Coast region of South Australia, home of Coonawarra and Wrattonbully. This region is highly valued for its excellent soils and cool climate and is one of the most famous zones in Australia for producing powerful wines.
At 225 acres (90 Hectares) Stonefields is our biggest vineyard. Soil composition varies across this large area, with some sections made up of terra rossa clay loams over limestone, characteristic of the neighbouring Coonawarra region. Combined with minor duplex brown loams over subsoils of red/orange clay and ironstone gravel, these soils are great for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinot Gris.
