New Chum Gully Estate, home to Ridgeback Wines, is situated in the cool-climate region of South Eastern Australia, in Victoria's Yarra Valley. The property is nestled on the back of a high ridge in an old gold-mining area dating back to the 1850s. There are still remains of old mineshafts embedded in the clay soils.

Their own label was released for the 2000 Vintage.
