“…the knowledge he gained of Burgundy over many visits, sets him apart from the others. “…following as far as possible the precepts of Burgundy”.

‘Few Victorian wineries occupy a site as beautiful as this magnificent property in the Tarwin River Valley among the verdant rolling hills of southern Gippsland. A magnificent avenue of imposing elms and oaks leads to the hospitable, off-the-beaten-track cellar door. It’s a labour of love for ex-jet fighter jockey and Pan Am pilot John Ellis, a softly spoken American-Australian obsessed with producing the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir possible in this lovely corner of Victoria. Wine quality can be outstanding.’
