Who We Are:
Blue Pyrenees Estate pioneered the modern Victorian Pyrenees Wine Region, first planting vines in 1963. This was a result of the first French – Australian joint venture in wine, originally called Chateau Remy.
Today, Blue Pyrenees is 100 per cent Australian owned and is led by Chief Winemaker Andrew Koerner. Proud of the fact that all of their wines are made from grapes grown in their vineyards and produced in their estate winery, Blue Pyrenees Estate are committed to making authentic, world class-quality wines.
What We Do:
The unspoilt landscape of Blue Pyrenees Estate’s natural vineyard amphitheatre is a grapegrower’s paradise, and its myriad slopes, aspects, elevations and soil types provide a range of microclimates.
The contrasting terroirs on one vineyard site suit the production of grapes for methode traditionnelle sparkling, red and white wine, a rarity not just in Australia but in vineyards around the world.
Each wine is crafted with a respect for those grapes and their inherent vineyard derived characteristics. This minimal intervention winemaking allows us to produce wines naturally, as we follow the entire journey from vine to glass. The wines are truly a product of the vineyard’s terroir and this sense of provenance is something that we consistently aim to capture.
Blue Pyrenees Estate receives national and international accolades year after year, and is a five red star Halliday rated winery. The cellar door provides an opportunity to taste the wines and book a range of food and wine experiences, seven days per week.
A short stroll up the hill from the winery, the cellar door building provides a superb vantage point from which to taste the wines, learn about the winemaking process, or enjoy a glass or two matched with our famous grazing boards of fresh local produce.
