Introducing Lone Star Creek Vineyard
Lone Star Creek Vineyard has been operating as a commercial vineyard since 1997. We purchased the property as grazing land and established the vineyard through the industry boom years of the late nineties. The journey has taken us on a roller coaster ride over the past twenty years.
Located in the Upper Yarra Valley on the boundary of Woori Yallock and Hoddles Creek, we produce cool climate grapes that are usually amongst the last picked in the region. The combination of rolling hills, variable soil types and viticulture practices has given the vineyard a unique terroir.
Having established a solid reputation for quality and consistency in our grape production for a number of renowned Yarra Valley winemakers, the next logical step for us is into wine making. As we are now living at our beautiful property, we have taken the plunge to make wine under the Lone Star Creek Vineyard label.
Franco D’Anna (winemaker at Hoddles Creek Estate), is making some wines which express the unique character of our vineyard with minimal intervention in the winery. Franco has a deep understanding of the potential offered by our vineyard, having purchased our wine grapes for his own labels for many years. We now have on release three 2017 wines (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah) and a 2018 Sauvignon Blanc.
Our label is a representation of all that is dear to us, including our Wiltshire sheep that help sustain the productivity of the vineyard. Volumes are small and will remain so.
We aim to deliver high quality and value for money wines.
We hope you enjoy them.
