Sorrenberg Vineyard Biodynamic

Our vineyard

Sorrenberg Vineyard was established in 1984. It is a 3 hectare vineyard at an elevation of 560 meters.
The vineyards are set mainly on granite rock with a sandy loam, which does have the advantage of being on the border where the granite meets the red mudstone, giving the soil greater water holding capacity. The finesse and elegance of Sorrenberg wines can be attributed to the fact that it is one of the highest vineyards on granite soil in the Beechworth region. The varieties grown are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Gamay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Gris and Merlot.

The Rhino block named after Barry’s maternal-grandfather’s Cosgrove vineyard, was established in 2005 at an elevation of 595 meters. This is a dry grown block on granite soils. Varieties planted are Chardonnay, Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc, and small amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere.

Bindarra block is named after Barry’s paternal-grandfather’s original¬†Shepparton orchard. Elevation 595 meters on granite soils. The vines were planted in 2019, varieties planted are Grenache, Mourvedre, Shiraz, Carignan, Cinsault, Gamay, Malbec, and Chardonnay. Grenache and Gamay are going to be established as bush vines.

Sorrenberg, Rhino and Bindarra are all certified biodynamic.
