Little River Wines is a small , family owned vineyard and wine producer situated on the northern side of Mt Cathedral and bordered by the pristine Little River in Taggerty.
Phillip and Christine Challen initially planted their vines – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon – in 1986. Their first commercial vintage was in 2001.
As well as the Estate range of wines, Little River purchases small parcels of fruit from a select few contractors throughout Victoria and makes a selection of hand crafted premium wines.
The vines are grown according to organic farming principles and the grapes are hand-picked at harvest. Bunches are lightly basket-pressed and wine is matured in French barriques.
Little River vintages, notably the Taggerty Sparkling Brut, NV Sparkling Shiraz and Estate Chardonnay continue to receive wine show success and awards for their remarkable fruit flavours and distinctive varietal characteristics.
Little River Wines are available from local dining and retail outlets as well as online. Visitors are welcome to the Little River Wines Cellar Door by appointment.
