Fratin Brothers Vineyard is nestled between the rolling hills and picturesque surrounds of the Great Dividing Range in Western Victoria, 50 km south east of the Grampians National Park.
Traditional grape varieties Shiraz, Chardonnay, Italian varietal Sangiovese along with the most recent plantings of the Spanish Variety Tempranillo make up the 8-acre boutique style vineyard. The high altitude allows for a long and gradual ripening season allowing for slow berry development. With a commitment to quality we continually ensure that the vineyard produces lower yields of the highest quality.
The wines are made in shallow, open top fermentation tanks, the skins hand plunged to extract intense colour, then basket pressed and the wine allowed to settle before being stored in a variety of American and French oak then carefully blended to produce award winning wines. Traditional winemaking methods and minimal handling of the wines allow us to capture the true characteristics and intense flavours of the vineyard.
