Yeowarra Hill wines is part of a business offering a function venue, party hire and catering business with the function venue situated to take advantage of the expansive views of the vineyard and Colac surrounds.
Wines are produced from fruit grown solely in their vineyard, pruned to achieve excellent quality fruit in low yields. The hand-picked crop is made in small quantities in an attempt to reflect the elegant complexities and varietal character of the cool climate of the region, whilst taking advantage of the verdant ground and fertile soil that gives the Otway hinterland a rich agricultural history. The quality fruit is further enhanced by the expertise of another Otway Harvest Trail member - winemaker Dinny Goonan.
The dedication to excellence in the vineyard and meticulous care and attention produced immediate results with their first vintage (2006) Chardonnay being awarded a medal at the 2007 Geelong Wine Show. With the 2007 Chardonnay backing up with a medal in the following year.
The James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 'highly recommended' the chardonnay saying it had great quality style and character, worthy of a place in any cellar, further successes have come with their Pinot Noir.
Visitors are welcome by phoning ahead for an appointment at their cellar door.
