TarraWarra Estate is known as a producer of exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and also make several other single block heritage varietals and estate blends. TarraWarra Estate wines are made to express the unique terroir of the TarraWarra site, which is comprised of many individual blocks and planted with carefully selected clones, each contributing their own unique characteristics to the wines.
The first 10 acres of vines were planted at TarraWarra in 1983 along with the Besen family’s vision to produce wines of superb quality and integrity and to share them in a location of great beauty and hospitality. The vineyard sits on 400 hectares of prime Yarra Valley farmland and some thirty years on, they are defined by this heritage and a deep sense of place. Under the watchful eye of winemaker Clare Halloran, all of TarraWarra’s wines are meticulously grown, hand-picked, vinified and aged on the estate.
The TarraWarra Museum of Art presents seasonal exhibitions within an award-winning building set in the rolling hills of the natural Yarra Valley landscape. Since opening in 2003, the Museum has become recognised as a cultural jewel of the region, providing visitors with an enjoyable and inspiring experience which combines stunning architecture with the very best of Australian and international modern and contemporary art. The Museum actively engages with art, place and ideas, presenting unexpected links between contemporary art and modernism within global, national and Indigenous contexts.
