Nillahcootie Estate Vineyards are located at the northern end of Lake Nillahcootie in the Upper Broken River Valley...
The first vines were planted on the property in 1988 in a small three acre block. Nillahcootie Estate now has eighteen acres of luscious vines across the property. The total row length of the vineyard is nineteen and a half kilometers!
The close proximity of the vineyards to Lake Nillahcootie (a 40,000 ML reservoir) reduces the incidence of frost and the risk of damage during the early stages of growth.
The vineyards location in a valley orientated north/south, secures consistent airflows. This substantially reduces the incidence of fungal disease and promotes the minimal use of chemicals.
The result is premium handcrafted varietals that are lovely examples of our cool climate style...
