“…the very beginnings of winemaking, combined with sustainable vineyard principles and modern wine science to produce our special wines.”
A unique sustainably managed farm experience. Based on our love for the natural environment our staff work as a family with biodynamic principles in mind to provide a unique experience for our visitors and customers whether that be through our wine, food or accommodation.
Trofeo Estate is unique, producing common varietal wine in Terracotta Amphorae. We have delved into the very beginnings of winemaking, combined this with sustainable vineyard principles and modern wine science to produce our special wines.
Trofeo Estates owners Jim and Kathy Manolios, purchased the property in February 2012 with the vision of creating a sustainable rural environment for the production of wine and local produce. Following the devastating disease pressure of the 2011 growing season the vines were in poor health and the property in a general state of decline. The conversion to biodynamic management started immediately, with the vines requiring almost full rehabilitation. The original building was restored and now houses our winery and restaurant ‘Whispering Vines at Trofeo’. Jim and Kathy incorporated into Trofeo Estate their existing 50 acre farm on Dunns Creek Road which provides produce, farm stay accommodation and cattle for the Estate.
