Disclaimer: I am not an expert in wine. My views of the wines and cellar doors are based on my personal experience. It’s mostly on my interaction with the staff and owners.

The Tscharke family are one of the original settling families still operating a family business in the region today. They started as a mixed farming business, including the production of grapes for on selling. The sixth-generation farmer, Mr Damien Tscharke continues the family’s rich tradition, and also become the first generation of winemaker.
The interior was very prettily decorated. I loved how they incorporated their branding in their decorations.
Wine bottles inside the light “nest”
We were blessed with good weather and spent some time outdoor.
The basement was converted to a function cellar for private wine tasting events.
Whilst not certified organic, they engage in organic farming principles for grape growing. The wines are vegan friendly, no animal or dairy products are used in processing and they do not filter or fine. All wines are produced using techniques requiring minimal intervention.
Our take home wine was Shiraz Shiraz Shiraz. The three Shiraz vineyards provide a complex, balanced wine that is layered with dark fruit and red cedar. Rich aromas of black berries, liquorice, plum, caramel and fig are evident. On the palate, fruit cake richness, savoury spice and dusty persistent tannins provide a refreshing display of Shiraz flavours.
The wines here are priced very reasonably. This bottle of Shiraz cost us AUD10! #goodthingsmustshare 😛
