Kancoona Valley Wines & Cafe
Our unique location, climate and low fertility red mountain soil give rise to low yields of grapes with intense colour and flavour. Thermal breezes that rise from the Kiewa River Valley make their daily journey to our vineyard throughout the growing season which helps keep our vines disease-free and reduces the need to use chemicals. We do not use any insecticides in our vineyard.
In this pristine and idyllic setting small quantities of handcrafted wines are being produced from premium grapes.
Kancoona Valley vineyard was established in 1989 with plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir and later Merlot. We began making wine in 1999 producing our first release of Cabernet Sauvignon and in 2000 Pinot Noir.
The wines are handcrafted by using traditional winemaking techniques. We are now becoming well known for our award winning preservative free wine. We do NOT add sulphur dioxide to our wines.
Our vineyard is a mountain valley vineyard. We are situated in the uppermost reaches of the valley in a natural amphitheatre 12 kilometres from the Kiewa River, halfway between Myrtleford and Mount Beauty in the Alpine Valleys region of North East Victoria.
Directions: Just 38 km from Myrtleford and 37km from Mt Beauty off the C534 Happy Valley Tourist Drive.
