United Cellars Tasting Room
It’s not every day you see a winery hit its quarter-century, but on Wednesday the 17th of June, you’ll get to celebrate this special occasion with one of our favourite wineries, Bannockburn Vineyards.
25 kilometres northwest of Geelong along the Midland Highway, the Bannockburn Vineyards estate is located in the Moorabool Valley sub-region, just outside the township of Bannockburn. Since 1995, this estate has been creating exceptional wines built for ageing. At this special tasting, we will taste back through time, and celebrate 25 years of this Estate with wines from several different older vintages, as well as some younger ones.
Matt Holmes commenced making the wines at Bannockburn Vineyards in 2015. He sees his role as a servant to the vineyard, growing season and fruit to produce wines representative of style and site. Above all, gentle inputs and minimal additions are his goal. In his words, “Well-nourished vines grown in a suitable spot, picked on the right day, transcribed as wine.”
Previously, Matt had been making wine in the Okanagan wine region of British Columbia, Canada. During these 10 years he also gained a broad range of experience working additional vintages in the U.S., France, Italy, New Zealand as well as Australia.
