Below are the details for Yarra Ridge Vineyard, Australia.
|Winery Name:||Yarra Ridge Vineyard, Australia
|Other Details:||Since its inception in 1988, Yarra Ridge has become the most successful vineyard in the Yarra Valley.
Yarra Ridge was the brainchild of a lawyer, Louis Bialkower, who bought the land in 1982. The following year, Louis planted five hectares to Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The reputation of Yarra Ridge grew, and from 1989 to 1995 every vintage of Yarra Ridge Chardonnay that was shown won a trophy.
Since Beringer Blass entered the scene, in 1993, the Yarra Ridge winery and vineyards have expanded and improved at a dynamic rate. The original five-hectare planting has become 60 hectares, but the philosophy has remained the same. At Yarra Ridge, the wine is made in the vineyard.
Many viticultural innovations have been introduced. Among them are trellising systems such as the Geneva Double Curtain, Scott Henry and Lyre.
The results of these viticultural innovations are extremely encouraging. Fruit ripeness has improved and the incidence of disease has been considerably reduced.
