In 1991, John and Susan Vale established a vineyard on their rural property – “Gannawarra” close by the town of Balnarring on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula, 70kms south of Melbourne and later in 1997, built a stone and mud-brick winery and tasting room to accommodate the production of fine wines produced from the vineyard.

After some 24 years we are now producing some of the finest hand crafted cool climate wines from unusual varieties such as Tempranillo, Petite Syrah, Gewurztraminer and Riesling.

All of the wines are hand made by us at our winery and are matured prior to release. The quantities are very limited (sometimes only one or two barriques), and are released exclusively to our mail order and Internet wine enthusiasts.
