Greenstone Vineyards, Lush Australian Wines Located One Hour from Melbourne
Greenstone Vineyards, formerly known as Greenstone of Heathcoat, was set up in a 40 hectare land near Colbinabbin, north of Melbourne. The name ‘Greenstone’ was chosen because of the variety of soil found in the region. The main aim of the winery is to produce in a low quantity, premium, and handcrafted wines. Greenstone acquired the winery and vineyards in Yarra Ridge in 2015. They also set up a new cellar door at this location, one hour from Melbourne’s Central Business District. The head winemakers of the winery are Han Tao Lau, Amanda Flynn, and Sam Atherton. All of three of them have vast experience in the wine business and are committed to producing high-quality wines from the Yara Valley.
Greenstone Vineyards focuses on low yields planting less than 4500 vines per hectare so the concentration and quality of the grapes remains high.
