Yering Station | Yarra Valley

Yering Station Winery in the Yarra Valley of Victoria state of Australia

With vines first planted in 1838 by the Scottish-born Ryrie brothers, Yering Station can lay claim to being the first vineyard in Australia's Victoria State. The brothers acquired 17,400 hectares and planted two grape varieties at the time - black cluster and sweet water. In 1850, the site was sold to a Swiss-French immigrant, Paul de Castella. He increased the vineyard by a further 20 hectares, sourcing vines from around the globe including some from Chateau Lafite. In 1859, de Castella built the Old Winery to house his winemaking equipment. In the mid-1800s, other Yering Station signatures were established, from the grand avenue of Elm trees to the historic Heritage Barn.

Each symbol shines as a testament of the centuries-long journey of Yering Station. In 1996, Yering Station was purchased by the Rathbone family, lovers of wine with a rich family background in agriculture and engineering, it is a true family operation. Through their vision and powered by passion, they have gone on to build what is now an icon of the region. A jewel in the Yarra Valley crown, Yering Station produces world-class cool climate wines from its revered vineyards which are famously abound with expressive varietal flavour and integrity.
