Region Beechworth

Beechworth

Located in the foothills of the Victorian Alps, Beechworth is a small cool climate region with high continentality. The vineyards enjoy a large number of sunshine hours and are generally planted at altitudes of 400m. A variety of soil types are found with the two dominant ones being ancient sandstone gravel and clay and granitic loams over decomposed gravels and clays. While north or north-easterly slopes are generally favoured, the best sites are located away from higher altitude, cold-air drainage channels, with the risk of frost high in both spring and autumn. Restricted water availability means most vineyards are dry-grown. A region of small boutique producers, Beechworth is best known for premium Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Noir, although plantings of Italian varieties including Sangiovese and Nebbiolo also show great promise.

Winery DOMENICA

Domenica is the exciting project of Peter Graham, long-time assistant winemaker to Rick Kinzbrunner at Giaconda. The Beechworth vineyard, planted in 1995 and 1998, is adjacent to Giaconda’s Warner Vineyard at 550 metres above sea-level. Graham bought out Kinzbrunner and Michel Chapoutier to achieve full ownership. Domenica’s first release, in 2013, was a Roussanne-Marsanne blend, followed by a Chardonnay, a Shiraz and a Nebbiolo. Domenica is a label to watch.
