Squitchy Lane Vineyards is located in the Gruyere area of Victoria’s famous Yarra Valley. It’s near neighbours include Coldstream Hills, Yarra Yering and Medhurst vineyards. The area is slightly cooler than the Yarra floor but warmer than the higher altitude vineyards of the Upper Yarra. Originally planted in the early 1980s, the property was purchased in 1996 by Mike Fitzpatrick (Carlton football great). In 2004 the decision was made to begin production of a small range of premium wines with the varieties most suited to the vineyard site. Great efforts are made in the vineyard to ensure the minimum intervention is necessary in the winery. The end result is a group of wines that are balanced, harmonious and graceful, with full flavour development at low alcohol levels so the wines can refresh as well as sustain the soul.
