What's On


Ridgemill Estate Winery and Cellar Door

Their Cellar Door is open for tastings and wine purchases Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 3pm . Their Cellar Door Manager, Marissa, will introduce you to the range of Ridgemill Estate wines with tasting notes on each from their dry whites and reds to their alternative varieties, sparkling and fortified wines. The vineyard is amongst the highest altitude wineries in Australia at some 840 metres above sea level. Situated on a gentle sloping, south-facing field, the rows of vines are oriented north to south giving them bright morning sunlight but the chance to cool and sweeten in the late afternoon. The granitic sandy soils together with warm summers and cool evenings provide the ideal conditions for growing premium fruit with these alternative varieties that thrive in similar conditions as the Rhone Valley wines of France and the Rioja region in Spain. White Wines and Rose… Chardonnay, Viognier, Verdelho, Semillon, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Rose (Cabernet Sauvignon). Red Wines... Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Merlot, Mourvedre, Saperavi, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo/ Monsastrell/ Grenache. Sparkling… ‘Eloise’ Brut Chardonnay Pinot Noir. Fortified… Sly Dog (white sherry), Howling Dog (tawny).
