Lilliput Wines

Victoria | Rutherglen

Our Review

Angelica and Pieter Hellema have painstakingly developed an 8.5ha vineyard planted to cabernet sauvignon, merlot, shiraz, viognier and petit verdot, using organic principles. Correspondingly, in the winery, only a small quantity of SO2 is added. The name ‘Lilliput Wines' dates back to the original crown land allotments (which were extremely small) and the presence of a large family headed by James Gullifer (nine of 16 children survived). In the 1870s there was a Lilliput Winery on the other side of the nearby creek. -JAMES HALLIDAY
