Under the Radar Yarra Producers
The Yarra Valley is arguably now Victoria’s premier region for wine. While names like Oakridge, Mount Mary, Giant Steps, Coldstream Hills, Yeringberg and de Bortoli are familiar names to wine drinkers across the country, the region has plenty of great small producers. This Saturday we will feature three small producers from the Yarra who’ve been making excellent wines for a few years but have largely gone unnoticed in the shadows of their more prominent neighbours. Dappled have just won Best New Winery in the Halliday Companion, Mac Forbs – while now established, has a little know side label which is brilliant and unknown. Out of Step are producing excellent little wines which are brilliant for the price and finally while Hoddles Creek is now almost a household name their little Wickhams Road project is just too good to pass up.
To round this all out Olivia from Harper and Blohm will have some artisan cheeses from The Yarra Valley Dairy Company on tasting so you can experience everything the Yarra has to offer without have to drive down the Eastern!
