The Castagna Vineyard is situated at an altitude of 500 metres five-and-a-half kilometres outside the historic town of Beechworth in north-east Victoria, high in the foothills of the Australian Alps. Our soil mainly consists of decomposed granitic-loam with a predominance of quarts particles on a base of clay. The climate is distinctly Mediterranean with hot days and cool nights during the important part of the growing season. All wine is made from estate-grown fruit We make wines of terroir. Terroir is not only about soil but the whole eco-system which consists of light, heat, prevailing winds, slope of the land, length of the season and, most importantly, the organisms living and working in the soil - about a billion organisms per gram of soil. It is these micro-organisms that link the soil to the roots of the vine, strengthening and imprinting that particular soil’s authentic character. Vines, through photosynthesis, convert air, light and heat from the ethereal into the material. Air, light heat – into - taste, colour aroma. The vineyard is hand-pruned and the fruit is hand-picked. We crop at a little less than two tons per acre. The winemaking is very traditional using only our own vineyard's indigenous yeast, and that, combined with minimal interference, is the key to achieving vitality and complexity. Elevage varies between 18-20 months using only the very best, tight-grain French oak available, about half of which is new each year. Our intention is to make, as simply as possible, wine which is an expression of the place where it is grown. The wines of Castagna are multi-awarded and are at the forefront of the new Australia Read less
