Little River Wines
Little River Wines "A Handcrafted Indulgence"
The estate vineyard is located at the northern end of the Cathedral, nestled on the pristine Little River as it leaves the Cathedral Ranges State Park.
Philip and Christine Challen established the vineyard in 1986 and are involved in all of the processes of wine making from pruning the vines, crushing the grapes, tasting the ferments, blending and bottling- all done with a dedicated passion for their craft and a quest for perfection.
They specialise in producing low volume of the highest quality still and sparkling wines based on organic and permacultural principles.
"There is nothing we enjoy more than to welcome our visitors to Little River Wines and share the fruits of our labors and passion for our wines" Christine Challen
