Closing Down Sale

After nearly 30 years, the Duke Vineyard in Red Hill South will be ceasing operations in the next month or so. The vineyard and cellar door will reopen later in the year under new owners and we can let you know more about that then. We do have a small amount of wine still available and are offering it to our customers such as you.

These are:

  1. 2015 Pinot Noir ($240 per dozen). This wine has a red cherry and plum nose with some smokey oak, with rich cherry flavours and an elegant structure with fine lingering tannins.
  2. 2015 unlabelled Pinot Noir ($120 per dozen). This has a cherry nose with cherry and spice flavours and fine tannins.

If you are interested in reserving some of these wines, please contact us by email ( or phone (59892407) and we can put it aside for you. If you are local, we can arrange free delivery. Other deliveries will be via Australia Post. We would, of course, be delighted to see you if you want to collect your wine in person between 12.00 and 5.00 on weekends.

Payments can be made either by credit card or direct debit if you are having your wine delivered and by credit or debit card or cash if you are collecting your wine in person. We can arrange this when we confirm your order.

This has been an exciting part of our life for some time and we are glad that you have been part of it. We are grateful for your support.

Best Wishes
Sue and Geoff Duke
The Duke Vineyard

The Duke Vineyard was established with a small planting in 1989. Since then, the area under vines has steadily increased to 4 acres. The vineyard is exclusively planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a variety of different clones. The first commercial Chardonnay was made in 1994 and the first Pinot Noir in 1997. The wines are made entirely from fruit grown on the vineyard.

Winemaker: Geoff Duke

Our cellar door is open every weekend plus public holidays and during January from 12.00 till 5.00pm. Visitors are most welcome to visit us then. We are about a 1 hour drive south-east of Melbourne.

Address: 38 Paringa Road, Red Hill South,
