The Best Wine Making in Victoria

Unlike larger commercial wineries, we do not use massive blending to intentionally create the same generic flavoured wine year in year out.  Our wine is individual and carries the winemakers own signature, personality, and distinctiveness. It is a labor of love and passion from three mates that desire to produce special and personally appealing wines.

 

Careful and meticulous wine making practices and specialized viticulture are utilized to ensure the highest quality cool climate wines are produced.  Central to the process is the ‘ballerina" method of canopy vine management that allows the gentle morning sunlight and soft mountain breezes to delicately ripen the fruit, producing vibrant colours and intense fruit flavours.  This distinctive canopy is symbolized by the Gapsted Wines ballerina icon. 
It has a team of 4 excellent winemakers who are willing to throw their thoughts into the ring. They have virtually unlimited access to ultra premium cool climate fruit, grown by the partners in the business. And they have a large modern winery producing a small premium product. All these factors combine to give Gapsted great structure and support, with the nimbleness to act as a boutique producer.

Our wine making team places great emphasis on the importance of research and development and a significant part of this is experimenting with new varieties.  The varieties also showcase the region; in particular the King Valley which is widely recognized for alternate grape varieties, particularly those from the Mediterranean region.  We now have an extensive range of Limited Release wines and we intend to continue to develop our portfolio of unusual varieties.
