AWARD WINNING WINES FROM THE BEAUTIFUL GIPPSLAND LAKES AND RIVERS REGION OF VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.
Since the beginning, our aim has been to create wines reminiscent of the great European styles, with a character that reflect the intense flavours unique to the area. The extensive range of wines on offer is ideal for people wanting more than the mainstream can offer, and are great with food. We make small quantities – 30 to 200 dozen – of wines that suit our soils and climate, and that we find interesting.
Visit our Cellar Door for a tasting and a chat. We have a picnic area that is ideal for enjoying lunch or a snack over-looking the lovely Nicholson River while the kids play.
Local cheese and anti-pasto platters are now available at Cellar Door. Bookings are appreciated.
Nicholson River Winery welcomes group bookings and functions. Please email or phone for further information.
Great wines have a basis of fruit weight, concentration, length and sense of place – characters which can be formed only in the vineyard.
Our primary task at Tambo Wine is to grow grapes which express the site and take the essence of that fruit and then preserve it as wine.
The character of the fruit from Tambo vineyard reflects the relatively soft temperate maritime climate.
The winemaking starts in the vineyard monitoring the fruit, assessing the balance of fruit and tannin ripeness, acid structure and flavour development.
The picking decision is shared with the winemaker and the grape grower based on an understanding of the year and the possible wine style.
The winemaking style employs scrupulous hygiene, intuitive rather than formulaic methods and sensitivity to the nature of each year’s fruit.
