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

Opera & Wine at the Vines
To celebrate the coming of winter and less than a year until our main event, Castlemaine State Festival in partnership with Sutton Grange Winery are excited to present a gorgeous concert featuring the divine opera tenor, Kanen Breen (Opera Australia, Victorian Opera) accompanied by renowned conductor and musician John O’Donnell, at the stunning Sutton Grange Winery. Together, they will be performing pieces from the wildly disparate shows that Kanen has performed in over the past year, think Schostakovich meets Monteverdi by way of Gilbert & Sullivan and Tom Waits!
If that weren’t enough, guests will indulge in a post-concert wine tasting, having the privilege of sampling Sutton Grange’s best including a selection of wonderful winter reds and 2017 releases by winemaker, Melanie Chester, whilst polishing off a delicious array of canapés.
