Steels Creek Estate was established in 1981. The vineyard is situated in the picturesque Steels Creek Valley (part of the Yarra Valley wine region) with sweeping views towards Mount Slide and the Kinglake National Park. There is an abundance of wildlife‚ contributing to the overall charm of the location. Visitors to the winery are warmly welcomed and can view the operations from the tasting area.
The vineyard is planted with the red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. Our white varieties are Chardonnay and Colombard. The Colombard is believed to be the only one in the Yarra Valley. Our wines are made from the estate grapes and will always express the seasonal variations - our strong belief is that the wines are made in the vineyard. To this end significant work is undertaken to give the vines every chance to produce the finest wines. Management of the vines includes shoot and crop thinning and constant attention to disease control. Nutrition is closely monitored and organic fertilisers are utilised.
