About Us

Welcome to The Grove Estate Experience

Enjoy the magnificent views over the vineyard while tasting the range of award winning Grove Estate Wines.

Located in the beautiful Hilltops Region just four kilometres out of Young, Grove Estate has quietly built an international following for their award winning wines, which include both traditional reds and whites and some interesting Italian varietals.

The extraordinary partnership of viticulturist Brian Mullany with winemakers Tim Kirk and Bryan Martin has resulted in a run of notable wines that have produced exciting results at many Wine Shows across Australia and internationally.

Tim Kirk of Clonakilla and Bryan Martin of Ravensworth have been making our Shiraz Viognier, Nebbiolo and Italian varieties for the past 15 years. We are very proud of this partnership and hold it in high esteem. Tim was awarded “Winemaker of The Year” in 2013 and Bryan was a finalist in 2016.

How it began…

The Flanders, Kirkwood and Mullany families established the Grove Estate vineyard in 1989. The property was purchased with the aim of producing premium cool climate wine grapes on its red volcanic soils.  The Grove Estate vineyards already had a long history of involvement with the wine growing industry with vines originally planted on the property back in 1886. The Croatian settlers moved into the region after leaving Dalmatia and brought with them bundles of vine cuttings, some of which survive at Grove Estate today.

Since 1989, over 50 hectares of vines have been planted on the property, including the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Zinfandel, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay, Semillon and Nebbiolo.

In 1997 the partners of ‘Grove Estate’ decided to keep a small parcel of fruit and produce a range of premium wines under their own label. The first wine released was a 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon – and today, a smart selection of reds and whites exist. They include an Italian style Zinfandel, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon and Nebbiolo.
