Sutton Grange is located on the southern edge of the Bendigo region, and for many years was known for its thoroughbred racing facility. Since planting of the vineyards in 1998 it is now recognised for the wines it produces. The Sutton Grange vineyard is cultivated using organic and biodynamic methods, and the wines are traditionally handcrafted by winemaker Melanie Chester. The wines combine distinctive style and interpretation with our organically grown estate fruit creating wines that express the uniqueness and characteristics of the site. Producing two labels, Fairbank – the original name of the property in the 19th Century, and our Estate range. Wines under the Fairbank label are crafted to be approachable, fresh and fruit driven. The Estate wines strongly demonstrate the terroir and characteristics of the farm, also included in the range are some less known varieties such as Aglianico.
"TODAY THE FAIRBANK WINES REPRESENT
SOME OF THE MOST EXCEPTIONAL VALUE
FOR MONEY WINE IN AUSTRALIAN WINE"
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual
Both labels (Fairbank and Sutton Grange Estate) are available at leading restaurants and bottle preferred wine sales outlets.
"THIS IS A MASTERFUL STATEMENT OF BRIGHT, COMPLEX VINEYARD-DRIVEN CHARACTER & INSIGHTFUL WINEMAKING
Nick Stock, The Penguin Good Australian
Sutton Grange Winery is both unique in its location and wine style. It sits distant from the typical concentration of wineries within the Bendigo wine region, being located near the nexus of Bendigo, Heathcote and Mount Macedon G.I.’s. It is physically positioned at the foothills of Mt Alexander which influences climate and its terroir is dominated by granitic soils. A stunning winery is supported by a picturesque surround to make a visit to the cellar door one of life’s great journeys.
