History & Geography
Greenstone was established in Heathcote in 2003 with a fastidiously conceived, close planted vineyard by three global industry luminaries; Alberto Antonini (Poggiotondo & Antinori, Chianti), David Gleave MW (Liberty Wines, UK) & Mark Walpole, Vigneron & former Viticulturist at the highly acclaimed Brown Brothers, Australia. Thanks to these trailblazers, our Shiraz & Sangiovese wines have long been regarded as the pinnacle outcome of exceptional site and viticulture. Our operation broadened in 2015 with the acquisition of the former Yarra Ridge vineyard & winery in the renowned Yarra Valley. Planted in 1983 by Melbourne solicitor Louis Bialkower (with help from his then law firm partner & Australian wine legend James Halliday!), this site provides an outstanding source for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and more.
