Gloucester River Winery enjoys the most scenic setting of any winery in the Gloucester valley, you’ll love the intimate views of the stunning Buccan Buccans (the Bucketts Mountains).
Owner and winemaker John is passionate about his preservative-free wines, do try his chardonnay, his rose and more!
Gloucester River Winery boutique vineyard situated on 30 acres by the Gloucester River grows and produces wines with no added preservatives. The on-site cellar creates small lot vintages of 200-500 litres.
The wine is handpicked and handcrafted in the cellar, not the laboratory, and varies from year to year. Each year’s tastes are driven by the climate, not what can be manufactured through blending. The wines are faithful to both their variety and the growing conditions.
Using 460 year old methods brought from Central Europe, the wines are characterful, often intense and completely authentic. No additives, no chemicals, no pesticides, or chemical sprays, no fertiliser other than that generated by the property’s cattle and turned into ‘cow pat tea’ before being sprinkled around the vines.
This is a vineyard that makes wine like it used to be made. Visit, taste, picnic by the river!
