The Castagna Vineyard is situated at an altitude of 500 metres, high in the foothills of the Australian Alps.
Our soil mainly consists of decomposed granitic-loam with a predominance of quartz particles on a base of clay. The climate is distinctly continental with hot days and cold nights. All Castagna wine is made from estate-grown fruit which is certified bio-dynamic
The vineyard is hand-pruned and the fruit is hand-picked. We crop at a little less than two tons per acre. The winemaking is traditional using only indigenous yeast, and that, combined with minimal interference, is the key to achieving vitality and complexity.
Elevage varies between 18-20 months using only the very best, tight-grain French oak available.
We make natural wines of terroir. Our intention is to make, as simply as possible, wine which is an expression of the place where it is grown. The wines of Castagna are multi-awarded and are at the forefront of the new Australia
