They use sheep to help control the weeds, never herbicides and control mildews through the use of everyday kitchen products
Check out their stunning views of the foot hills of Melbourne while enjoying a glass of wine or wood fired pizza cooked on site. Hildebrand ridge is an Organic vineyard and uses Organic method to produce our wines. We follow the sustainable farming method and will embrace lower yields in an effort to tend and care for our land. We do not use Insecticides and allow the natural balance of other insects to deal with any unwanted pests. We use sheep to help control the weeds, never herbicides. Control of mildews which is an ever present danger to vineyards is accomplished by the use of everyday kitchen products. I can not claim to be the inventor of these methods but they have been long forgotten and not used in modern viticulture. I have found them most effective. Our wines are the Chardonnay, pinot and cabernet varieties. We have recently started to offer boutique beer for sale by glass over the bar,
Our cellar door is at the top of Hildebrand road ridge and offers stunning views of the foot hills of Melbourne. In the past two years we have also become a venue for musicians and poets to present their craft and have hosted local and international acts in an acoustic concert presentation.
