About our estate

Wedgetail estate wines are cool climate Yarra Valley wines with a European influence. Single vineyard handcrafted wines which ferment on natural yeast and are stored in French Oak barrels, for up to 18 months.  The Wedgetail wine making style is a fusion of centuries old world tradition, the new Australian reverence for grape quality and owner and wine maker Guy Lamothe’s individual flair.  All the wines are produced on site, the estate wines are all single vineyard wines with the fruit grown under Guy’s supervision.

Guy Lamothe developed his signature wine making style from his experience in France and Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.  He only produces as much wine as he can personally tend to and the fruit is hand picked over a long period, on a row rather than a paddock basis.

The slopes are demanding and the land rocky and hard.  Rainfall is low so water is scarce.  These factors and the practice of dropping fruit to control yield produces exceptional grapes.  Grapes which display intense flavours and intensity.
