Experience the delights of Sedona Estate wines

-

FROM humble beginnings in 1998 Sedona Estate has made a name for its award winning wines in just a few short years.

Owners Paul and Sonja are best described as modern type migrants trying to achieve the work of generation­s in one lifetime.

After many years overseas, Paul was looking for a new career in Australia.

Gaining invaluable winemaking experience at Yarra Valley wineries, and fuelled by Sonja’s genetic wine precursor, the seed was planted.

Paul and Sonja’s vision has been to produce fine cool-climate wines from their vineyard north of the Great Divide in the Yea Valley.

Their passion and dedication is reflected in the Sedona Estate range.

Varietal purity makes each bottle of wine a true experience.

The first vintage from 2003 laid a strong foundation for Sedona’s young wine brand; the wines delivered complexity and pure varietal flavours.

Sedona Estate officially entered the Australian wine industry with a top 5-star winery rating and ranking among the 10 best new wineries in Australia (Halliday Wine Companion 2007).

In recent years, Sedona’s Sangiovese has made a name for itself with top ratings of 95 and 96 points out of 100 (Halliday Wine Companion 2015, 2016, 2018).

The current vintage ranked No 4 at the internatio­nal 2021 London Wine Competitio­n.

Its Reserve Shiraz is a regular winner at wine shows, so is the hero wine, the Reserve Merlot.

The winery’s cellar door is well sign-posted along the Melba Highway just before Yea on the road to the alpine snowfields.

Tucked away in the rolling hills of Murrindind­i and surrounded by spectacula­r views, Sedona Estate is a great destinatio­n for wine lovers.

Enjoy an informativ­e wine tasting experience while sharing an Artisan Cheese Platter or Charcuteri­e Board, or in colder months delicious soups served with crusty sourdough bread.

“We are proud supporters of premium regional produce - handcrafte­d and made with care,” said Paul.

Produce from the Sedona Pantry and Cuvee Chocolates are also available for purchase at the cellar door.

Situated at 182 Shannon’s Rd, Murrindind­i.

Open: Thursday - Sunday 11.30am - 5pm.

Lunch: weekends and public holidays.

The cellar door has reopened following the lifting of COVID-19 lockdowns.
