John Donelley and his wife Lorraine are the owners of a boutique, family owned vineyard and winery. The winery was established in 1996 under different management, and has since split into different subdivisions with each variety of plant being established as a separate viticulture block. The Donelley’s own and maintain the Pinot Noir block. Pinot Noir is their personal favourite and they’ve enjoyed developing their vineyard over the past 7 years. They encourage tourists and locals to come and enjoy their location with it’s beauty, their wine, and a platter of local foods.
