Yarrawood Estate

Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges

Yarrawood Estate is situated in the heart of the world renowned cool climate wine growing region of the Yarra Valley. The estate is internationally acclaimed for producing fine hand-crafted single vineyard wines.

This family owned, multi-generational business, was originally designed and constructed by Erich Schwaiger. Erich’s youngest son Timothy Schwaiger now heads up the Estate, whilst also helping to raise Yarrawood’s third generation.

Yarrawood Estate’s wine philosophy is rooted in the belief that exceptional wine starts in the vineyard. Careful and considered management of the vines allows the Yarrawood team to meticulously construct wines that are truly reflective of their unique and rich terroir.

Yarrawood Estate’s strong company focus is on producing estate grown, single vineyard wines, that are truly representative of the Yarra Valley premier cool climate wine growing region.

While emphasis is placed on the regional backbone varietals of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Yarrawood Estate has also achieved great success with other varietals, including:

  • Shiraz – Winner – 2010 International Cool Climate Wine Show
  • Botrytis Riesling – Trophy – 2011 Yarra Valley Wine Show
  • Sauvignon Blanc – Trophy – 2016 National Cool Climate Wine Show
  • Cabernet Sauvignon – Gold – Wine Showcase Magazine

Yarrawood Estate’s Cellar Door & Café enjoys outstanding 360-degree views over the immaculate vineyard, picturesque lake, and the Yarra Valley beyond. Visitors are welcome to sample the full range of Yarrawood Tall Tales wines, or simply just relax with a glass of wine and a delicious meal.
