The vineyard was established in November 1996, when we started planting grapevines (Most of the planting were completed in 1998, but have made some minor changes to the vine range over time (adding Sauvignon Blanc in 2007). The winery was completed in May 2011. The majority work was done by ourselves and friends.
The winery incorporates the Tasting room (cellar door & outdoor patio) and the processing area, where wines are stored (in barrels, tanks and bottles). We also use the area for processing grapes at vintage time (March and April). The vineyard currently consists of approximately 4.3 acres of Pinot Noir (3 clones), 1 acre of Chardonnay (3 clones), 0.3 acre of Sauvignon Blanc and 0.3 acres of Shiraz.
We sell our wine under two brands names, EMERSLEIGH & Off The Wall. The EMERSLEIGH brand is used for our sparkling wine range and we will only use fruit from our vineyard for these wines. ¬†Off The Wall is the brand name for our table wines. Off The Wall wines are predominantly made from the fruit grown on the property, but occasionally we offer up some interesting wines sourced from other vineyards.
Wines can be ordered on line, we can send you a brochure with all our wines and prices. Wines can also be purchased at the Winery by the bottle or by case.
