St Huberts

St Huberts offers a warm, friendly and informative cellar door, in addition to a great outdoor area for families to picnic and enjoy a bottle of their award winning wines, produced from some of the oldest vines in the Yarra Valley.

Hubert de Castella’s passion for the Yarra Valley saw him establish the St Huberts vineyard in 1862. In 1880 St Huberts won Emperor Wilhelm I of Germany’s award for the most successful exhibitor at the Melbourne International Exhibition. The tradition of producing world acclaimed wines continues to this day.

After before being purchased in 1902 by David Mitchell, St Huberts ceased operation in 1912. In 1966 it was replanted by Tom Cester and set on the path of winemaking again, making it the first of the replantings in the Yarra Valley.

The St Huberts range includes sparkling, roussanne, chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Amongst these, their most acclaimed wines are the chardonnay, pinor noir and cabernet sauvigon.

Today St Huberts has flourished into a winery that boasts an endless list of high ranking awards, trophies and great reviews in the Sydney Morning Herald and ‘Epicure’ in The Age.

The St Huberts vineyard is placed on one of the best viticultural sites in the Yarra Valley. Winemaker Greg Jarratt steers their philosophy geared towards maximising quality potential in the vineyard.

A visit to this stunning vineyard, featuring 25 hectares under vine, is sure to unveil a friendly, knowledgeable tasting experience. The quaint yet picturesque cellar door
offers daily tastings, coffee and a range of wine merchandise.

Enjoy a glass or bottle of their acclaimed wines under the stunning elm with a cheese platter or picnic with friends on the expansive grounds. There is also an electric
barbecue available for visitors to enjoy lunch on the lawns.

Tasting Notes

2012 St Huberts Cabernet Sauvignon

Individual vineyard parcels were fermented in a range of vessels in order to enhance the differing flavour and tannin profiles of the fruit. With plum and cassis on the nose, ripe and fleshy plum and chocolate flavours continue. As the 150th anniversary vintage of this wine, it will age nicely for years to come.

2012 St Huberts Pinot Noir

A percentage of this handpicked fruit was whole bunch fermented with wild yeast to add complexity. A pale crimson hue, this depth is seen on the brooding nose – with layers of black cherry, spice and earthy characters. Light-bodied, this ripe vintage shows generous red fruits and structured tannins. A hint of blood plum precedes a long cherry and toast finish.
