With a desire to find a location back in the late 90’s which brought out the desired flavours and body from the soil, the first vineyard for Granite Rose Estate was discovered. Located just out of Bendigo in Harcourt North on the foothills of Mt Alexander.
With a passion for Bordeaux & Mediterranean wines, studies and overseas ventures to experience first hand the centuries of fine winemaking began.
Traditional methods are at the heart of the Granite Rose wine making process. Bio-friendly using no artificial fertilizers on our soils. Our Italian family traditions of slow basket pressing of the grapes with ultimate care and slow maturity in 225 litre barrique French oak barrels with minimum filtration to obtain maximum natural flavour.
