The Wines

Yes! Leanne is coming! We adore this intelligent, articulate and passionate woman of wine and you will too. Leanne is a third generation De Bortoli, who’s grandparents Vittorio and Giuseppina established De Bortoli Wines in 1928. Leanne and her husband, winemaker Steve Webber, run the Yarra Valley vineyards and cellar door – to huge critical acclaim.

Be ready to be impressed by what they’re doing with some of the oldest vines in the area.

Leanne has selected an amazing range of wines for us to try.
