The Vineyard



Yering Farm is located on the original site of the Yeringa Vineyard, owned by the Deschamps family in the 1800's. The original Yeringa signage was recovered and now adorns the entrance to the Yering Farm Cellar Door. Resurrected by the Johns family in 1980, the first replanting of grapevines began in 1989.

Yering Farm Vineyard Information:

14 Hectares under vine (over 30 Acres in the old language)

Crop between 3 and 3.5 Tons per acre (90 to 100 Tons in total, depending on the season). 3 Ton of fruit per acre produces approximately 650 litres of Yering Farm wine for each Ton of fruit.

All Yering Farm grapes are hand picked to ensure only the best parcels of fruit are selected for our individually handcrafted wines. Whilst hand picking is more labor intensive (and costly), we at Yering Farm feel it is worthwhile in achieving the high standards desired.

Yering Farm enjoys a rich clay loam soil. The Yarra Valley encompasses a wide range of soil types. The soils in the middle section of the Yarra Valley are ancient, mountain-derived sandy clay loam interspersed with broken sand stone. The other soil type is much younger in origin and highly friable, brilliantly coloured, red volcanic soil found in both the Upper and Lower Yarra Valley.

The Yarra Valley is cool in relation to the rest of Australia's viticultural regions. The Yarra Valley is cooler than Bordeaux, but warmer than Burgundy, its elevation varies from 50 meters to 400 meters above sea level. Rainfall is winter/spring dominant, with the summer relatively cool, dry and humid. There is limited maritime influence and due to the proximity of the sea, there is only a small variation in night time temperatures.

Harvest typically commences with Pinot Noir in the first or second week of March and finishes with Cabernet Sauvignon in early May.

Yering Farm has adopted the following trellis systems in the vineyard:
Scott Henry, Geneva Double Curtain (GDC), and Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP)
