Dr Stephen Junk and Ola Tylestam have swapped a life of hospitals and finance for wine, animals and fresh air. The vineyards are roamed by alpacas, Wiltshire sheep, chickens and ducks which looks after most of the weeds and pests, while the four generations of Cocker Spaniel dogs feature on one of the wine range’s labels.
The property boasts a selection of clones of pinot noir and chardonnay, used to make both still and sparkling wine. The cool climate growing area assists in high natural acidity and minerality in the wines, while the warm days through summer give a long ripening season for the grapes. Winemakers Mike Garland and James Kellie produce a variety of wines including riesling, sauvignon blanc, shiraz, cabernet, a dessert wine and two sparkling wines.
The modern cellar door is perched on the side of a hill overlooking the pinot noir vines. The AJAR restaurant is just next door and offers a wide selection of dishes alongside the Estate 807 wines. There is indoor and outdoor seating, the deck offers sweeping views of the vineyards. Both are open Thursday to Sunday 10am - 4pm.
