Coterie

Get involved with the winemaking process through our Coterie Vintage Membership. This innovative and interactive membership is a fusion of food, wine, new friends and good times over a series of unique sessions! No winemaking experience necessary - just a love for wine and making friends!

The winery is full of new toys for our winemakers to play and excitement levels are high! The winery is in full swing with winemakers Behn Payten and Damian North testing out all the new bells and whistles ahead of a very busy year. It’s shaping up to be a promising vintage and we expect to make some very special wine! 

The selected variety for our first Coterie Vintage Membership is a Shiraz from a magnificent vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley called Tibooburra. This property provides a variety of farming pursuits – as well as a number of grape varieties, Tibooburra also runs a substantial herd of Angus cattle and more recently truffles were discovered on the property! Greg and Susan Kerr are certainly living the dream and managing a property with a complete commitment to sustainability and environment. We are so pleased to be working with them on our first Coterie wine project.

Coming from a cooler area of the Yarra Valley, these grapes will be ready in late March. Damian North from Journey Wines is running this year’s Coterie Vintage Membership program. It’s a whole lot of fun when you are squishing around in your bare feet in one of the grape bins during vintage and then enjoying your wine at our Uncorked wine dinner in December!
