Kyotmunga Estate is a small family-owned winery and olive grove.
It was first planted with vines in 1997 and the first vintage was produced in 2000.
All the grapes are hand-picked and since 2003, the wine has been made on site.
Kyotmunga's signature wine is Shiraz, but Grenache, Barbera, Chenin Blanc and Taminga (a hybrid variety developed by the CSIRO for warm climate growing conditions) is also produced. A Shiraz/Grenache port and a sparkling Shiraz is also available.
The Stringybark Winery's vineyard is one of the oldest in the Chittering Valley and produces a very limited quantity of hand picked Cabernet Sauvignon,
Chardonnay and Verdelho grapes each year.
This limited production combined with the special regional characteristics of the Chittering Valley helps to produce wines with real fruit
intensity and distinctive varietal character.
The rustic restaurant is a great dining venue all year round offering a welcoming open log fire in winter through to air conditioned comfort during the summer months. Whether your favorite is fresh seafood, delicious duck, the very best in lamb and beef dishes or tasty vegetarian, you will find it at Stringybark Winery & Restaurant.
Lower Chitterings topography is the key to the diverse landscape, with hills and valleys producing a number of microclimates suitable for different grape varieties.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, with hot dry summers and cool, wet winters.
Night time temperatures are very cool during the growing season due to the elevation and continental effect of the region.
This is ideal in retaining acid structure and flavour of the grapes.
All of the fruit for Western Range Wines is sourced from the local area where the growers pride themselves in sustainable viticultural practices, which includes the minimal application of chemical sprays to consistently produce fruit of outstanding quality every year.
