Summer 2017/18 Newsletter

Posted: December 01, 2017 Category: Newsletters

"Hello from the prettiest place in Victoria, perhaps Australia. We have just witnessed the latest start to spring in the 30 years I have been growing grapes in and around Bright. My vines generally burst their buds around the 21st of September with the earliest being the 16th and the latest being the 26th. This year it was the 8th October! People were still snow skiing in October! My guess is that this lateness will follow on right through the growing season until harvest. Just when we were getting used to early vintages (harvests) and global warming, the weather gods throw in a couple of cool yorkers to confuse everybody."

Coming to Feathertop this Summer! Introducing the Peak To Creek Summer Ale

Posted: October 04, 2017 Category: Latest News Comment: 0

So what do you do when you can't hack back to back skiing and the kids can? You retreat to Blizzard Brewery at Dinner Plain and plant the seeds for a collaboration beer project before the lifts have closed!

Blizzard Brewery is the highest brewery in Australia and with the crystal clear water at the source - what a sensational platform to create beer. Our wine label, Feathertop, draws its inspiration from nearby Mount Feathertop, Victoria’s second highest peak.  With these common synergies (and yes coming out of a few shared lagers this winter when Janelle needed to retreat from the slopes); it gives us great pleasure to announce that we have joined forces with Blizzard Brewery to create our very own Summer Ale called “Peak to Creek.”

For many years we collaborated with Mildura Brewery to create a Boyntons label and we know many of our customers have a strong appreciation for craft beer as well as beautifully made hand crafted wines.  We hope this collaboration with Blizzard Brewery enables you to enjoy the best of both worlds!

Exclusive Preorders for members are OPEN NOW!

For a limited time we are giving our Summit Cru Wine Club members the opportunity to preorder a 24 can carton delivered with your November case. At $95 per 24 that's less than $4 a can you can sit back and relax at home with a truly North East regionally produced craft beer – influenced from peak to creek. At 4.6% Alc/Vol, this approachable, crisp, clean and fresh drop is an Ale but drinks like a Pilsner and is as refreshing as the cool snow melt that trickles down from Mount Feathertop!

To preorder email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Payment is not required until your November case order is processed (late November).

Pre orders close 27 October 2017, and there are no limits on the number of cases you can order, so please order here or phone the winery directly on 03 5756 2356 with queries.

Want to know more on how this collaboration came about? Watch this video where Janelle interviews Mark and Chris at Blizzard.

Spring 2017 Newsletter

Posted: September 18, 2017 Category: Newsletters

"Pruning is all but finished. There is still some wrapping down of canes to do, some wires to re-tension and some posts to ram in and then we are all done for another year and the vines can start their spring growth which I find magical. What I can tell you after pruning is there will be ample Nebbiolo this year to make a good volume, enough to satisfy our Summit Cru Wine Club members plus a bit more to go through cellar door. Of course that won’t be until 2019. Good wine takes time. We will also get a decent amount of Fiano which is exciting, our first off our own vines. On a smaller scale we will get just enough to make a tiny bit of Montepulciano and Verdejo. These two new varieties in the Feathertop
portfolio hold great potential so it will be with extreme interest to see what harvest brings. Life is never dull!"
