Coombe Farm wines are classically varietal and regionally expressive. Handcrafted in very small volumes, our wines are made from the best estate grown fruit our vineyard has to offer. All Coombe Farm wines are produced entirely from fruit grown in the estate vineyards.
The first wine made under the Coombe Farm label was a Pinot Noir in 2002. Since then the range has developed into a small yet comprehensive display of both the traditional and alternative varieties that Coombe Farm and the Yarra Valley do best.
Coombe Farm’s Estate range are produced from grapes selected each year as the best the estate has to offer. Varieties include regional specialties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as the very popular Pinot Gris and newly planted Shiraz. Wines are hand picked and handcrafted in small batches and where oak is used for fermentation or maturation, only the finest is sourced.
Our Tribute wines, named to honour the legacy of our forefathers are made only in the best vintages and blended only from the best barrels and wine batches.
Our knowledge of the Yarra Valley and depth of winemaking experience ensures that each Coombe Farm wine is the best the season can deliver.
