Owner/winemakers Drs. Ken and Miranda Jones formerly at Edinburgh University established the winery in 1998. Assistant winemaker Felix Jones specialises in wine sales and is often to be found entertaining visitors at the cellar door - when he's not being a paramedic in Melbourne. The tasting room is open every day from 10am until 6pm (winter) and 10am until 7pm (summer). As well as via the Internet, the wines are available at the cellar door, at selected restaurants and at local retail outlets.
