Winemakers Guill and Sandra de Pury ensure that wines are made only from estate grown grapes. There is great attention to detail in the vineyard. All vines are hand pruned and grapes are picked by hand. Wines are made with minimal intervention from vineyard to bottle and cellared in the best French oak barriques. While they are approachable when young, Yeringberg wines are designed for long term cellaring.
Yeringberg wines were established in 1862. The estate was founded by Baron Frederic Guillaume de Pury who migrated to the Yarra Valley from Switzerland. Yeringberg produced wines continuously until 1921, winning gold medals in London, Paris, Bordeaux, Calcutta and San Francisco.
In 1969, third generation, Guill de Pury re-established the Yeringberg vineyard on the northeast slopes originally chosen by his grandfather. The de Pury family currently produce around 1200 cases of Yeringberg wines each year from some of the oldest vines in the valley. The range includes single vineyard wines from grapes grown on the slopes overlooking the Yarra River floodplain.
