About the winery

Ted Vogt purchased the original Warramunda property in 1975 and operated a cattle and sheep stud known as ‘Warramunda Station’. In 1980 the property was extended by an extra 320 acres.. In the spring of 1998, Ted’s son Rod – a scientist turned farmer with a passion for soil – had the vision and the experience to plant a first-class vineyard. To harness the landscape’s unique geology, Rod planted Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Pinot Noir, Marsanne, Viognier and Shiraz. We purchased ‘Warramunda Vineyards’ in 2007 and renamed the vineyard ‘Warramunda Estate’. We produced our first Warramunda Estate vintage in 2013. The wines exceeded our expectations and enabled us to establish a firm direction for our wine – bespoke, handcrafted wines, which reflect our site, our vineyard and the quality of our fruit. The Cellar Door is a small extension of our home, we invite you to take your time with a glass of wine and a taste from our food menu in the sunshine and enjoy.

History & Geography

The Ryrie Brothers first settled the area in 1837, driving their cattle herd south from NSW and establishing a 17,000 hectare farm on the site of Yering Station. James, Donald and William planted two varieties of grapes in 1838 but cattle was their main concern. Paul de Castella purchased the property from the Ryrie Brothers in 1850 and wine-grape production in Victoria became a growing industry. Many hectares began to be planted to wine grape varieties, under familiar labels such as Yeringberg, and St Huberts but by 1921, the Yarra Valley wine industry was in serious decline and most of the region was converted to cattle grazing pastures. In 1968, Wantirna Estate and soon after in 1969 Yarra Yering were established. This signalled a rebirth of the Yarra Valley industry and vineyards began to emerge across the region. In 2015, the region processed 1.67 million tonnes of wine grapes and had approximately 3,000 hectares under vine.
