“…with the sea breezes of the bay, our vineyard site is warmer and dryer than our hinterland neighbours.”
Located close to sea level, only 5kms from Port Phillip Bay, Trofeo Estate’s vines consist of Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our cool climate region is complimented with the sea breezes of the bay, our vineyard site is warmer and dryer than our hinterland neighbours.
With more than 50 acres under vine, Trofeo Estate is proudly motivated in the sustainable care of our vines. We believe in nurturing our vines by employing the very best organic and biodynamic management strategies to improve our soil and vine health. We use cover crops of legumes, oats, vetch and compost from the vineyard’s organic waste.
Our flock of Wiltshire Sheep are used as mowers for under vine weed management and fertiliser thus keeping the weeds down whilst adding nutrients to our vines. Visitors to Trofeo Estate will often see the sheep milling throughout the vineyard, especially in the cooler months, the lambs can be of particular delight to our younger guests.
It is our belief that you can only make great wine from great fruit, and great fruit comes from healthy vines. Our vines are completely hand tended from pruning through to picking, ensuring each vine is treated individually. It is the care, hard work and commitment throughout the year in the vineyard, that forms the backbone of our wines.
