Humble Beginnings

Tarzali is currently run and owned by the Ross Family. It was always an ambition of David and Pauline Ross to have their very own vineyard on their farm and it wasn’t until David ceased off-farm work in 2003 that the opportunity came about to grow wine grapes.

David’s cousin John Ellis from the Hanging Rock Winery in the Macedon Ranges, suggested that the farm would be very well suited to growing grapes and so it was that in that very same year, the first Riesling vines were planted and established the humble beginnings of the ‘Tarzali Vineyard’.

The cool climate conditions that prevail in this valley are perfect for producing quality fruit and wine true to their varietal characteristics. The decomposing granite based, duplex soils consist of a layer of deep fine sandy loam top soil, over a layer of yellow sandy clay. These two layers of soil sit on a layer of mud stone approximately 1.8m below the surface which in turn results in the excellent, water holding capacity for these fertile and complex soils.

At Tarzali, we specialise in boutique wines
of both red and white varieties with our signature wine
being Tarzali Riesling.
