Tar & Roses- One of the Most Respected Wineries of the Region
Tar & Roses lies in Central Victoria in Australia and is one of the most acclaimed wineries of the region. The winery is inspired by the Mediterranean, yet is uniquely Australian.
The original Tar & Roses team of Don Lewis and Narelle King began their winemaking journey in Priorat, Spain, immersing themselves within the classic Mediterranean wine regions and varietals. This sparked an interest in how these varietals could be grown and made back home in their native regions of Central Victoria, Australia. Don Lewis cemented his name in Australian wine industry history by winning the 1991 Jimmy Watson Trophy. His legacy lives on in the Tar & Roses tradition of championing Italian and Spanish varietals, helping new world wine drinkers explore new flavors, and in the ‘Lewis’ Riesling.
Various Types of Wines
The staff produces wines that have individual flair and are distinctly varietal and reflective of their terroir as grown in Australia. It’s the little things that make the difference, from the quality of the fruit to the care and continued maintenance in the winery. The vineyards of the winery are taken great care to produce the best wines in the region. The grape varieties cultivated in the vineyards include Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Prosecco, Nebbiolo Rose, Shiraz, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, and Nebbiolo. These grapes are fermented and matured in the cellars properly to produce top-notch wines.
