Ross and Dallas Lewis purchased the 70-acre property in 1996 as a working cattle farm with the intention of growing “a few grapes”. The initial five-acre planting consisted of Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. During the following years, additional planting increased the vineyard to 18 acres. The first vintage of Riesling in 2000 was a few hundred kilos!
Ducketts Mill Wines And Denmark Farmhouse Cheese was first opened on Boxing Day 2004. The current owners, Annette & Laurie Stock, have been running the business since 2018.
Come and visit the cellar door and find out how far “a few grapes” have come!
