Our Review

Canadian-born photographer Guy Lamothe and partner Dena Ashbolt started making wine in the basement of their Carlton home in the 1980s. The idea of their own vineyard took hold, and the search for a property began. In their words, ‘one Sunday, when we were “just out for a drive”, we drove past our current home. The slopes are amazing, true goat terrain, and it is on these steep slopes that in 1994 we planted our first block of pinot noir.' While the vines were growing Guy enrolled in the wine-growing course at CSU, having already gained practical experience working in the Yarra Valley (Tarrawarra), the Mornington Peninsula and Meursault (Burgundy). Exports to the UK and Canada. -JAMES HALLIDAY
