One of the region’s youngest wineries is opening the doors to its unique bush vineyard for the first time on Saturday.
Ulupna Winery, on the Murray River near Barmah National Park, started production in 1999 but has never been open to the public before.
While there are plans for a cellar door, this will be the first opportunity for curious wine enthusiasts to have a poke around the vines and taste the winery’s wares.
General manager Vivi Ferrari said because the vineyards were so close to the river, the alluvial soil gave the grapes their own unique qualities.
‘‘They’re quite different to vineyards only 30
‘‘We use traditional methods and really allow the grapes to express themselves.’’
Ms Ferrari said the winery was untouched by time and the environment came through in the wine.
She said Ulupna, which started as a hobby venture, was now producing some of the best grapes in the region.
The vines, nestled among red pepper trees and red gums, produce shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, as well as chardonnay.
