The Napoleone family have been growing and farming in the Yarra Valley since 1948. Today, the third and fourth generations still own and farm our estate vineyard in the heart of the valley.
58 hectares of our estate in historic Coldstream is under vine. Our key varieties include Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay and Shiraz.
Wines of a time
Our philosophy is that the wines should represent the time and place they came from. Jarrod Johnson, our winemaker, crafts the wines to reflect the growing season and express our Coldstream estate's cool climate and terroir.
Decisions about when to harvest are led more by the flavour and acid profiles of the grapes on the vine than their sugar accumulation. Once the grapes are picked, the winemaking team goes into overdrive, carefully managing every aspect of the winemaking process to extract the best possible flavour from the juice during fermentation.
It's all about
The goal of winemaking is to showcase the pristine fruit flavours. While oak maturation is a traditional method to enhance the wine, it should never overpower the fruit.Shop wines
