Wine Making @ Yering Farm Wines

Alan Johns winemaking differs from production line techniques, as he hand crafts original New World wines from estate grown fruit. Alan's hands on approach to winemaking and viticulture ensures that all Yering Farm wines are of the highest quality whilst retaining their individuality. No expense is spared when creating Yering Farm's sophisticated premium wines of distinction. At Yering Farm you can experience how the wines develop over time, as we carefully cellar many back vintages and offer a range of interesting wines to taste.

The quantity of Yering Farm wine bottles produced varies, depending on the season. On average Yering Farm produce 72,000 bottles(6,000 cases) of Estate Grown handcrafted fine wines each vintage.

Yering Farm uses French Oak Barrels due to their tighter grain. This allows for more subtle oak influences on our handcrafted wines. Yering Farm use a range of different sized French Oak Barrels. The larger the oak barrel, the more subtle the oak character achieved as there is a smaller proportion of oak contact with a larger volume of Yering Farm wine.
