Giant Steps Yarra Valley

Gruyere Farm Vineyard

Located just around the corner from Sexton Vineyard on a gentle east facing slope at the base of the Warramate Ranges, Gruyere Farm Vineyard is planted on ancient soils; shallow gravelly loams over a rocky clay and granite base. Gruyere Farm ripens a little later than other lower Yarra Valley sites caused by a combination of the late ripening I10V1 clone and its easterly aspect.
