Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

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.
