St Huberts Cabernet Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Yarra Valley Victoria
Hubert de Castella's passion for Yarra Valley saw him establish St Huberts in 1862. By the late 1800s it had grown to be the largest winemaking estate, the wines enjoyed immediate success in markets local and abroad. The onset of the Great Depression, the increasing popularity of fortified wine and the emerging profitability of dairy farming saw the vineyard revert to grazing in the 1920s. It wasn't until the 1960s that Yarra Valley again rose to prominence as a wine producing region and St Huberts was once again, one of the leading protagonists.
