The Riverstone Estate

The Riverstone Estate is a boutique 75-acre property situated in the heart of the Yarra Valley, on the banks of the Yarra River. The vineyard was established in 1995, and the first vines were planted in December 1996. In total, there are now 25 acres of vines on the property and the winery currently produces six wine varieties, including shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet merlot, rosé, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc.

Harvest is held from February to March and pruning from June to August, making The Riverstone Estate a spectacular sight to see year-round, no matter the season. As well as being conscious of producing only the highest-quality wines, the estate is also mindful of its energy expenditure, maintaining its vines with a savvy drip-fed irrigation system from the storage dam, which is a more sustainable and water-saving system than other methods.

The Riverstone Estate wines are of top export quality, and can be regularly found in China, as well as several high-end restaurants around the world.

The Riverstone Estate cellar door offers 360-degrees views across the Yarra Valley and a beautiful place where you can relax and enjoy exploring. Visitors and guests are encouraged to try the boutique wines and take in the stunning vista from the gorgeous wrap-around balcony.

From perfect summer days spent relaxing with a picnic on the grass to enjoying the cooler months in front of a roaring fire, the property is simply stunning year-round.

The Riverstone Estate is always warm and welcoming, and provides country hospitality like no other. Ask about holding your next event here, whether it’s a corporate meeting, birthday, or wedding!
