Yarran Wines - (Australia)
Lorraine and John (late) Brewer purchased the property in 1978 with another local family and set out to re-develop an old fruit farm into a vineyard which the winery and cellar door now call home; in the Riverina, Yenda, NSW. Initially the vineyards were developed to supply larger local wineries, it would be another 20 years of grape growing before Yarran Wines was hatched with the first release of Shiraz in 1998. At the time (and still to this day) we have played the role as small/boutique player in a region of influential and hugely successful wineries in the region. Paving a path to showcase our region’s diversity and varietal expression has meant many years of vineyard and winery development. This next era will see our final stages of organic certification completed, a bigger push into unique regional varieties and hopefully some great vintages under the Yarran brand. Growing fruit, making wine and sharing it with our customers all on one site brings with it many challenges and long days, in the end we love our role and will keep slowly making our way.
